Way to connect Gotek HxC to PC as 1.44MB A: drive

Post by pong777 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:39 pm

What is correct setting to operate with Gotek with HxC firmware under PC (Win XP)?

I tryied to set S0, S1 and 3 different modes but always have "No disk in drive" error in Windows XP.

Gotek see DSKA0000.HFE image on pendrive becouse "000" appears on display. Do I need also set motor on jumper or do extra things?

Gotek checked on Amiga (S0 set on) and works normally at autoboot mode.

Standard Gotek without HxC firmware working correctly on S1 jumper set on this PC.

Too many 0's in the file name ?
I think the number should be 4 digits

I correct to right file name.
I put also DSKA0001.HFE file on pendrive and Gotek see it and I can change between 000 and 001 on display screen but PC says that there is no disk in drive A:.

I use 4 MB HFE images from:

HxC Floppy Emulator DOS Disk Browser link.

I use hxcsdfe.cfg file from this place and its seems to be worked fine :-)

And another question:

Is it possible to set some setting on Gotek HxC and work on 1.44 MB device like on 720KB device or it is hardware depended?
