From DF0 (real floppy drive) to DF1 (Gotek, raw/extended adf).
That won't work with any of the current gotek firmwares. The data would have to be stored in some kind of raw format, but that isn't implemented.

It would probably be best to have some kind of special bus sniffing mode in the gotek, combined with some special software on the Amiga to run the drive. Then again, it could be possible to make an image reading firmware for the gotek and connect the drives together directly, forgoing a host computer..
