he last visited 14 Dec so not too regular.

I think what he done was to toggle pin 10 and pin 12 of the floppy cable so that it would cause one of the other to show as DF0:

It's a shame that nobody is making and selling something like......

I bet it would come in very handy for everyone with a gotek that wants to connect it up to the external drive port.

Because it (and the ICD ShuffleBoard) only work with computers with a socketed Gary chip (i.e. A500/A2000/CDTV)

True, but I reckon most people using a gotek are probably Amiga 500 users that can't use internal ide solutions.

I'm no expert, but don't think this would cost to much to make. What I'm trying to say is that if they can make cables to connect a gotek or hxc etc to the external port then why not make these too if they are cheap to make.

It's just nice to have options.

Only a idea!

It is very cheap to make indeed.. That is just two sockets, some wire and a dpdt switch.

It would work.

If it's "amiga twisted", then the twist should only affect the LED wires, not the drive selects.

The modification is to the floppy cable, not the A1200

Yes, the switch decides which device's pin 10 is connected to pin 10 on the motherboard connector.

Yep, I did this (there is a pic on another thread here somewhere) based on Jope's info.
On my A1000, I had this with a Gotek and an internal floppy.
Worked great!

My cable was really messy tho, and before I could clean it up, I got most everything working with the Gotek and just removed the floppy drive, so I haven't gotten back to that project.

I probably will tho before too too long. (My A1000 is having some volume problems, so I'm hoping to fix that first, and if that goes well, I might get back to the switch and put a real drive back in.
