Now, there is v2.0. It works with STe reliable, and really fast (~1MB/s). Unfortunately I can't make it to work with STf (with non-buffered ACSI port).

Hmm, maybe an H4 (with DMA fix) or H5 owner with this could try it & let us know the result?
IIRC they have a buffeted DMA....

@JezC Yeah I tried on my H5 and it worked OK for a bit, then one day it randomly corrupted and wiped the entire drive...
@tzok I haven't tried this v2 firmware yet, I'll try it out! I can't find a link to the firmware on Github, could you help?

There is not a bin/firmware on there. You have to compile it yourself with the Arduino program (acsi2stm.ino is the project file). The pinout has also changed so beware of that.

@tzok @DoG Have either of you precompiled the firmware by any chance? I haven't used arduino software before

I'll PM you. I haven't tried it though, just so you know.

Been playing with the RaSCSI and Falcon today, it's working really nice! It is kind of awesome, the RaSCSI is running Debian and connected to WiFi, so I can SSH into it, DD a fresh drive image, mount the image in the RaSCSI service and voila it shows up on the Falcon :) Very cool!

Looking forward to playing with Daynaport SCSI ethernet emulation, which would effectively make my Falcon wireless :D

Powered the RaSCSI by piggy backing off the Gotek:
