Thanks again for the info!

Re: Going Gotek - FlashFloppy How To

I've just followed the guide on how to upgrade a Gotek using the USB A to A method - really clear & easy to follow! Much simpler than the serial upgrade method I used to put the HxC firmware into another Gotek a year or two ago. Many thanks for the excellent tutorial. Looking forward to putting it i...

+1

I'm really grateful to all the people still working hard to support these platforms - they don't get anywhere near enough credit for all their hard work IMO!

Re: Ultrasatan & external 1.44m Floppy on stock Falcon

Hi, Thanks for the info. The IDE to SD card adaptor might be a good approach for sharing the SD cards as you suggest. I have a CF card and adaptor but have not yet had chance to try & format it...I only have a very old version (v4?) of HD Driver (or ICD Pro) at the moment and I'm not sure if they wi...

Ultrasatan & external 1.44m Floppy on stock Falcon

Hi All, I was wondering if it was possible to use an Ultrasatan with a Falcon?

Anyway, I've made a little progress - disconnecting the internal Conner CP2064 HDD allows the original floppy to work OK (I managed to...

Falcon issues

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me to diagnose the faults & ultimately repair my Falcon. It's just come out of storage & it boots up & passes the memory test OK but the internal 65 meg Conner hard drive appears to spin up but didn't appear on the desktop. even worse is that the internal floppy doesn...
