New external floppy drive case + interface ready for Gotek & HxC

Sakura Externa Floppy Drive case and interface (without the drive itself) is available now at RetroAmi:
http://retroami.com.pl/index.php?id_...duct&id_lang=1

The case + interface allows installation of Gotek, HxC rev F or a normal floppy drive.

The original Gotek firmware by H.M. is problematic, so users are encouraged to upgrade to Gotek HxC firmware. See this thread. We can only give guarantee of 100% compatibility with Gotek HxC firmware.

Note for HxC rev F users: If you own HxC rev F, please first check if the screw terminals at the bottom are well aligned (compare them to a normal floppy drive). Early HxC rev F had them too wide which makes it impossible to align with mounting points of the case.

Price: 56,99 EUR / 63.13 USD.

Looks good - will you eventually be able to deliver it with an HxC Gotek already installed?

I dont actually need it, but in my opinion it would be nice to have the case in other than black colour, to fit A500 and or A600/1200 setup. The black one would be very suitable for CDTV of course.

We're evaluating options. For now it's only available as:
- a complete, assembled, ready to use unit with floppy disk drive installed
- a case + interface kit (with cable), where user is supposed to install emulator or floppy drive of his/her choice

Sorry, only black is available. Producing a separate case batch in other colour, would unfortunately increase the price.
