Hi!

 

My Gotek usb-stick doesn't work anymore, what files are needed on the usb-stick to work properly?

 

Niklas

That highly depends on the firmware you use:

 

1 - Flash Floppy

 

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

 

Specifically, this expects an FF.CFG, a sample/default file is available on the site... I set the 'host' parameter to ti99, otherwise I've left everything else defaults.  https://github.com/k...figuration-File

 

2 - hxc floppy emulator

 

http://hxc2001.free....drive_emulator/

 

this has a windows desktop application for creating HFE files from DSK files, and that same app will create the configuration/preferences for the floppy emulation.

OK, the sad part, I´m using HxCFloppyemulator and I can´t manage to find where to create the configuration.

When I click on USB HxC floppy Emulator settings it says FTDI D2XX Driver not installed. I downloaded the D2XX driver to OSX and followed the instruction, but there are no difference.

What am I doing wrong?

or is it possible to download the config files and put it on the USB-stick?

I can´t create AUTOBOOT.HFE or the HXCDFE.CFG... :?  this is really annoying!  :mad:  :_(

I guess these are the important files to get it work...

Tell us what the files are, so we too can have a great working GOTEK FDD emulator.

It was HXCSDFE.CFG it´s the config file that is needed.

There were also a HXCFEUSB_HFE_V3_0_8_2a.upd, I don´t think it´s needed... it seems to be a firmware update file.

This firmware is quite old... Anyway about the Gotek- HxC all is there (files + updates) :

Jeff_HxC2001, pardon me, but I don't understand the above quote.  :woozy:

I tried to read the update information on the pages you linked, but I seem not to grip the information, sadly.

 

When I mount a disk it is converted to HFE with help of the HxCFloppyEmulation program, will that not be needed with the new firmware?

 

And, thanks for the above information!  ;-)  :thumbsup:
