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

Ok, not much time tonight due to PSU rebuilds, but I made a start! 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...

Re: 2600 Composite mod

Ok, so the FMS6146-Ds have just arrived from UTSOURCE, worked out about 91p a chip, I have 10 now :)

Still waiting on the MAX7453s to arrive, they are due on Monday earliest unless the seller is telling porkies!
