Used windows 7 64 bit not win XP to make it more of a challenge, used a very cheap USB to TTL adapter with a give-a-way usb stick and I even used the standard prolific drivers and a USB HUB, but no joy.

Soldered a header on the gotek connected the 4 wires, started the flash software, clicked continue 3 times want is was al done
Life is like that sometimes it really sucks..

But there is hope!

The selector software does not like to be DF1 very much

Amiga boot menu select DF1, the selector starts but... before you get the firmware version it stops. At this point DF0 sounds very very unhappy and go's Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

But using the selector on DF0 assigning the ADF files to slots and then use it as DF1 it works just fine.

The selector software it way to fast on my 030@56. Even with my god-like reflexes (not) it takes some time to select ADF's to slots.

In all very happy with it, maybe we can find some use for the red LED, or the multicolour LED spot on the PCB. I miss the sound of a real drive...

It even looks like the 90's :-)
it's exactly what I would like to do with my old external floppy drive. But how to plug the gotek on it ? need something more, what modification ?
have you inside photos ?
