Gotek struggles


I have an Amiga A500.

I purchased a Gotek installed with Flash Floppy.

This is currently connected internally replacing the internal disk drive on DF0.

I have updated the firmware to the latest stable version.

I have had the drive working but recently tried to move to DF1 (with the DF1/ DF0 selector switch mod). This did not work - so I have tried to revert back to DF0 but this has now stopped working.

The LED will show ‘ 0-‘ the simply display the track number ‘001’ say.

Any troubleshooting tips will be massively appreciated. I feel like I am missing something obvious but cannot see the woods for the trees!!

Okay. Solved that one. Helps if you have the ribbon attached correctly.

Second issue - anyone struggling get their external drive port working? Tried an external floppy drive and the Gotek. Neither are working. Feels like a hardware issue?
