I picked up a Gotek (black) floppy emulator along with the $2 OLED screen. I reflashed the firmware with FlashFloppy using st32flash (available via ubuntu apt-get) as my fake prolific 5v serial USB dongle kept getting rejected by Windows 10 and Windows 10 USB passthru to Ubuntu in Virtualbox. The flash firmware works great, and the OLED screen is sexy.
It is mounted in an Oceanic America external case, which had a Chinon FB-354. The Chinon is jumpered as master, and the case has a PCB in it with a single IC. There was a wire running from the PCB to a WPS point on the PCB (write protect switch?)
Only once ever has my ST Mega 2 been able to talk to the drive. I always get drive not found.
The internal drive has always been failed as long as I have owned the machine, and I couldn't find a replacement.
I disconnected the internal drive so it would no longer respond, hoping that the external would respond (as B.) Is this an incorrect assumption? Does SD0 need to be there for SD1 to work?
I have tried the GoTek jumpered as SD0, SD1, and both.
The other Oceanic floppy I have, I just tried it and it doesn't seem to work either.
I believe it is possible to rejumper the Atari internally so the external drive becomes drive A? Worthwhile?
I have had a MegaSatan in the ST for a number of years. Mounted it on standoffs to the metal RF shield so the cards are accessible via the rear expansion slot.
Any tips appreciated!
