Gotek, Hxc usb and Mirage DSK8 sampler

Post by flyweight » Wed Jul 03, 2019 12:51 pm

Hi,

Hope someone can help me out.

I just flashed my Gotek with HxC, but it does not work in the Mirage
Green light is continuously green, with the floppy cable normal and reversed. Button presses do no do anything

- on the front page is written *.EDM Note : The floppy file image must have the *.EDM extension
But people report they use .HFE without issues

- I flashed the boot loader, if i insert a usb key it displays 'Norm', asume that is normal mode. If i inserst a ntfs usb key it says 'Fat'
So guessing the HXCFEUSB_V3_1_23_1a.UDP is loaded fine

- 1 Jumper only set to S0

In the root folder there is os32.EDM and DSKA0000.hfe
Then there are many folders with either HFE or EDM images.
If my Gotek Hxc is fully working in normal mode can I just load from any folder?

And removed the original firmware file

Now on the display i have "000"
Jumper on s0
There is a config for indexed mode
And a DSK0000.HFE or something like that.
However the DSK8 does not boot.
If i put more images i can not select them

Ok i got the Mirage to boot. Yes the cable should be connected upside down.

In both normal and indexed mode it boots but i cannot select any image.

Pressing one of those 2 gotek black buttons does nothing.

What am i missing here?

There is written 000

I got it to work. But only with indexed mode and DSKA0000.HFE
Seem to be a lot of bad disk images on the net.

If I use DSKA0000_somename.HFE it does not work.
Can I use meaningfull filenames with indexed mode and the Mirage?
I mean kind of hard to track what the images are.
Other then that I am sorted :)
I ordered a oled.
