Korg 01/W - settings working.

Post by Apek » Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:20 am

Just thought I would let anyone struggling with a Korg 01/W know. This is what worked for me.
Using a Gotek drive
Bootloader flashed as per instructions (btw it took me some to to realize that I didn't need to download the bootloader separately from the flashing utility - the utility finds the bootloader online)
The only jumper that needs to be on the drive is S0 (no JA, no MO - just S0)
Use the HxC utility to create one or more virtual "discs" on your USB (formatted to FAT32) MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE NAMING CONVENTION for the files - you can't just name them any old thing (see the Readme file included with the download package).
The format for the disc is the Korg format for DD discs - NOT IBM format (see the little dropdown menu in the lower left corner of the utility screen)
If you are creating a "blank" disc then when you put the USB in the HxC (Gotek) you will need to use the Korg to format it before you can use it - make sure to use the formatting screen on PAGE 2 of the Korg synth menu NOT the one on PAGE 4 (if you have the upgraded ROM - page 4 is for Standard Midi File only).

Hope that is of some help.

So your Gotek is working on korg? What is your model?
Can you tell me how you do it?
I can do it on computer, but korg does not find any files. :roll:
I am using SFR1M44-U100K

The installation of the firmware for the Gotek SFR1M44-U100K worked without problems. I installed the Gotek in my KORG 01W, but i didn’t have success to make it work.
The original floppy was damaged an I have no possibility to get any origin files from disks. The only way ist to store the internal files from the korg to the usb stick, but this don’t work anyway.
I use the Gotek in the indexed mode, but i don’t know in which way I have to format a „virtual“ disk or a file for saving it on the stick. Many, many attempts were wrong. I’d stored a few test-files with the ending *.hfe, the 3 digits/7 segments display shows the files, I can switch up and down, but nothing else. If I try to format, save or load with the KORG, the KORG hangs up an I have to turn off and on.
Does anyone have any advice?

Remove the usb stick and tell me what is displayed on the gotek.

Jeff, thank you for your answer!

Without the stick it shows "hxc". With an fat32 formated stick ist shows "nor" and a stick with the "HXCSDFE.CFG" for indexed mode and other files like "DSKA0000.hfe" ist shows the three Digits. The green LED from the Gotek permanently lits, but that seems to be normal as seen in a few YouTube Demonstration-Videos for the 01W.

If I try to load, save or format with the 01W, the KORG freezes and I have to switch off and on.

I have no older disks, because the origin floppy crashed. I use the ChangeIt-Software for data Exchange (sys-Files). Although I want to try to activate the emulator, but I have no idea how to format a file which can be read, written or formated by the Gotek. Many, many tries using the HxCFloppyEmulator (Disk Browser, create a disk and Export an Image) were unsuccessful.

I don't know what to do or whats the mistake.

Greetings Tom

Dear Jeff, I found the mistake. The floppy cable has to be fixed upside down, then it works.
