Gotek FlashFloppy ?

I ordered a USB stick with FlashFloppy pre-installed, how can I tell that the right thing is installed and which version ?

Assuming you only have LED screen, then it will be hard to tell.

You can either:

1. Connect to an LCD or OLED screen and it will say what version when it boots up - but you need to have the right setup and configuration (and possibly version, depending on the display):

https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy...ds#lcd-display
https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy...s#oled-display

2. Or simply just update it to the latest version (then you'll definitely know what it is! ):

https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy/wiki

I would go with both options!

I assume you have a Gotek with the FlashFloppy firmware and not just that USB stick

Doesn't matter. Just flash latest lol.

Or you could ask the seller regarding which flash they used.

Once FlashFloppy is installed you can update it the easy way, by putting the update file on the stick an pressing (both?) buttons on startup.

It should tell you the version if you power on with no USB connected.
