Re: Gotek with Flash Floppy

It is possible to hook both up at the same time internally and use a switch to change between them, as it was a project I was going to do, and even bought the parts for. Small problem, I can't find the link to the page anymore!! However since I planned to do it, I've used Goteks more and more, I fou...

Re: Gotek with Flash Floppy

Hey there, have a look at the how to I did a while back.

Towards the end you can find a run down on how to get images into the Gotek for use on ST.

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

So turned it on this morning, its been running almost 3 hours and at loop 47.. probably would have reached around loop 60 at 40mhz.. In anycase, its been pushing to run 15mins before... So I'm not going to touch a thing and leave it running see what happens... If it still running later, I will bash...

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

Damn, not an awful lot of good news then :( Could the CPU be heat damaged from the solder oven?

I could see it being a PCB issue, after all there were issues with the ROM switchers weren't there?

Such a shame if you can't get it going, but as ever your efforts are appreciated :)

Re: 2600 Composite mod

CompMOD.jpg Given the chip is about 5mm square, I'm quite pleased with the soldering results, considering it was done by hand with an iron! Looks like good connections under a magnifying glass so I'm hopeful it'll be good when I get ...

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

From previous tests no.. But that could have been bad soldering.. I will re-test later. I'd be interested in the results. I don't think its a thermal problem now.. 15mins at 38MHz and 15mins at 25MHz.. doesn't add up. Running slower should give it more runtime if even 10mins. Unless these CPU's sim...
