Hello.I am stumped on this and hoping someone who has used one of these before can guide me to the promised land?
I recently purchased the beige gotek USB floppy emulator, with the LCD readout and two button control on the front panel.
I have a straight through floppy ribbon cable, a 3.5" power cable, and a usb stick.
I've installed the unit in my PEB using the original TI disk controller. The ribbon cable is connected to the interior port.
The drive powers up and the LCD reads Ldr.
On my pc i've installed the HxC emulation software, and formatted my usb stick to FAT32 as instructed.
I copied one of the 3 .cfg files they supply to my stick.
At this point, I was hoping that meant I could power it up and access the usb stick as if it was, for example, DSK1.
Right from TI Extended Basic for example.
With the stick inserted into the drive, the GoTek LCD flashes 004 over and over again while the stick's led is solid red.
Using their emulator utility I created a SSDD 320k 5.25" disk image and copied that to usb drive. It has no files in it, just an empty image.
Same issue... GoTek displays 004 flashing over and over.
I can't seem to find a manual for this GoTek nor a model# and the paper work I received doesn't mention it. It was purchased on recommendation from these forums from ArcadeShopper and he's been very helpful but I don't want to keep bothering him
I am no expert on this stuff and was looking for a cheap / quick way to replace the broken 5.25 in my PEB - not even really caring at this point to transfer images to/from the PC, more just waned a drive solution for my TI itself.
Any and all replies welcome and appreciated, even mean ones
