Wilco! Photos will land here with description. Thanks!

It will have to be next week though. The entire family is going on a road trip!

 

 

 

Something's wrong here. If it is a TI trip, it is only you. Otherwise, the rest of the family is going on the trip and you should be at home playing with the TI into the wee hours of the morning :) .

I just picked this up. I have no idea of where to start. But I have a regular TI PEB with 2 half ht floppy drives. The drives are strung together on one cable. Somehow I've got to add this new drive and make it work.

The Gotek has to have the firmware on the chip changed. There are three ways to do this, one way is to purchase a firmware update from the creator of the Hxc Floppy Emulator, or to use a firmware called flash floppy https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy/wiki, and one other the CortexAmiga method https://cortexamigafloppydrive.wordpress.com/   search for these terms on this forum and you should find some good help. Some of us have done it all three ways and it has been documented. Hope this helps.

I just bought my first gotek. I can find utube video on basic programming, but nothing TI related as far as setting up. Should I just follow the normal process of programming..then dl the file and put that file onto a USB stick? Is that all I have to do?

You can use these instructions  http://99er.net/blog/blog/2016/05/06/using-a-gotek-floppy-emulator-with-hxc-on-my-ti-994a/

pretty much what you stated. After getting the firmware, whatever one you use, burned on the chip, afterward the process is similar and you will use the HxC file on the thumb drive. Been a year since I did this on any of my three goteks. Here is one I may have missed with some info.

I made a UsbA to UsbA cable and flashed the last gotek purchased with the FlashFloppy firmware. I was having problems getting my serial device to work properly. Using the Hxc firmware on one gotek and FlashFloppy another. No problem with either one after install.
