    One more time; Gotek hdx2001 .. Where am I failing here? Thanks! :-)

    Larry .. I CANT BELIEVE IT! yes! This is a major screw-up! I didn’t even know this was possible to write at 300kbps on a 360K drive .. I rewrote the formatter and BIOS that was intended for an 8” drive (back in 1985 or so) to work on 5” media. It seemed to work, so I never researched it. I’m...

    One more time; Gotek hdx2001 .. Where am I failing here? Thanks! :-)

    Thank you greatly, Sir .. OK, I've placed the .hfe file on my USB stick. When I boot up the system, I momentarily see "HxC Floppy Emu v5.2.1.2a". Shortly after I see; "MBAS.HFE Choose a file" (Not sure how to "choose a file" .. I tried pushing buttons, but I don't think I accomplished...

    One more time; Gotek hdx2001 .. Where am I failing here? Thanks! :-)

    Larry, I do have Dave Dunfield's Image Disk program. It creates *.IMD files. Is that what you could use to create an .hfe file? Can I attach a *.IMD file to a message to you on this forum? Should I use a boot floppy with system tracks AND files or just system tracks? Thanks!

    The only file on the stick is the *.upd firmware. I do not know if this should be visible on the OLED display or not? 😬

    Well, the OLED says there are no files on the USB stick in GoTEK drive .. which I’d expect, because CP/M can’t access it 😡

    CP/M and Goteck

    Hello… I am interested in replacing my 5.25 inch drive with a Gotek. A possible issue is it the first two tracks are in single density and the remaining tracks are in double density. Has anybody handled this scenario? Thanks. PS: I am using the HDX 2001 software.

    Is anyone using wirewrapping for fabricating projects?

    I still wirewrap my projects, but wirewrap supplies are getting scarcer. Can anyone recommend a source for sockets? Jameco has them, but they are quite expensive now! eBay ain't much better. And did anyone use "Wrap-ID's"? I loved those little plastic labels. They made wiring much easier...

    Hello! For one of my Covid isolation projects, I've dug out my old Dynamic Debugging Tool (DDT) for 8031 microcontrollers. It was a Ciarcia feature article in 1988 Aug/Sept Byte magazine.

    XT style power supply?

    Hello all! I have a 486 motherboard that I'd like to get running again. I have a few ISA plug in cards that may still work with it, but I have no case or power supply for it :-( I'd guess that the most important step (assuming I can find a video display adapter card) is to connect a power...
