gotek config issue

Post by Maych » Sat Jan 05, 2019 5:15 am

The S0 jumper was on, so I pulled it and tried to load a file. That didn't see the file, so I flipped the cable and that didn't do it. I then put the jumper back on with the cable flipped and no luck loading the file.

All of these efforts/attempts did resolve the disk issue mentioned before, so I can get to the menu on the DSS-1 and attempt to load a multisound, but all when attempting to load the multisound/file the DSS-1 just hangs posting "Searching for Msounds on disk"

JA and S0 are the two that are on, and was on when I got the drive. I took the S0 off at different times troubleshooting different scenario's.
Right now both are on, and the floppy cable is reversed. I'm using the latest .upd file mentioned earlier, index cfg file and I have 2 HFC files DSKA0000.HFC and DSKA0001.HFC

Please remove JA and retry with S0.

okay I pulled JA off, then went through the process of trying to load a multisound (For DSS-1, from system select 9 get multisound) and then enter.
Same results, searching for msounds on disk. The gotek led never comes on, but I do see the usb stick fluttering which appears that something is trying to access it.

WOW !! Jeff I'm restating what I've read on this forum many times. your time, patience, and support is just super fantastic. I sincerely appreciate it.
To close this out, I put the S0 jumper back on (with JA off) and the green light on the Gotek came on, but still couldn't access the files. I flipped the floppy cable again, rebooted and no green light (however), I can now load the multisounds from USB "AWESOME"

Again my sincere thanks for your patience and outstanding support.

After converting a bunch of files to HFE, I made up a new USB stick and loading full systems, AND the Gotek LED now comes on while loading !! Looks like I'm all set.
