Just a quick question. It seems there are at least two versions of the Gotek drive now available - one has the LCD display and two buttons (plus one green LED above them) and one has no LCD and no buttons (just holes where they should be) - but has the green LED above the holes. The question is - will the firmware work with the one without the buttons and the LCD - and if so - can one solder their own buttons to the board somewhere, since you need them for proper operation.
Here are the pics :
Also, will this kind of USB -> TTL RS232 converter work for programming or do I need something else ? Since people in this thread have mixed results :
