Is there a name for this certain serial cable? So I know what to search for.

Edit: It's a FT232RL 3.3V 5.5V FTDI USB to TTL. There up on Ebay for pocket change. Cheers!

I also have that, and it's the one I used for the gotek HXC upgrade.
Smooth as silk. Just remember to check that the jumper on the FT232R board is set on the 5v position.

Thumbs up Gotek native firmware

I've tried this software. It's only for the stock firmware and it works good only on XP. Pretty much it is useless and doesn't support 1000 floppy drives.
I've come with my own method for managing up to 1000 floppy drives for my Korg PA50 that works on any OS - [ Show youtube player ]
and it supports long file names.
I upgraded the second Gotek drive for use with my Amiga 1000 with the easier method by using Male To Male USB cable. A standard Male-Female USB cable can be made easily Male To Male by destroying the female part
Then I've used HxCEdit to assign the Kickstart diskette to slot 1 (or else I wouldn't be able to start the Selector.adf disk for managing the disk slots).

My Amiga 1000 fully utilizing Gotek

In fact I didn't use the Selector.adf becase UXCEdit is more convient to work with.

AFAIK the HxC flashing tool does not support this connection, only serial.
