So I see this release you're listing here fixes some issues with that. You also gave us IPF (covert to HFE first) and buzzer support. No clue about what HD ADF means though.

I am really happy with how you have continued to improve on this firmware and I am still happy I invested in the HXC firmware for all 5 of my Goteks. Keep up the great work

For the moment use an FAT sorter software

Available on MAC OS X, Linux & windows :

Quick question. I ordered a couple of .91" 128x32 OLED screens to mod my HxC Goteks, however it would seem these screens are considerably larger than the window on the case for the segmented number LED display. How is this commonly handled? Do you chop the case up to proper width, or is there a way to set the unit up to partially use the OLED so that it all fits into the window?

The actual output is not really larger than the cutout. Put some text on the screen and mark up the edges with some tape before you position it behind the cutout to get it properly centered.

It will end up being mounted like this one:

This is how I have done it and I have no problems reading the full display, as long as I am not looking from too large an angle (seeing as the display is not flush with the front).

Nice to hear. Can’t it stay in place without the hot silicon glue?

There is an option in the embedded menu to change the numbers of characters per line to fit correctly the window (16 up to 40 characters).

I guess you could use regular glue or tape.. Or if you mount the Gotek it with the display facing down, gravity could hold it in place.

How did you imagine it could stay in place without glue? Notice that the display is not mounted inside the hole but behind it.

I have added a piezo buzzer successfully but what does it mean? I'm worry

The sound output can be disabled or enabled into the selector settings.
(Note : Please remove these old sound mod using directly the floppy step signal, they are producing reliability problems...)

During the "Cortex Era", some got the bad idea to make a sound mod using the step signal with a simple transistor. This circuit is drawing current and add capacitance to the step signal. This generate tons of "funny" behavior related to a track position mismatch : some games didn't worked properly, random read / write error and so on...
