Hi,

The red and green leds are off, and the display (2 digits) shows the 2 last digits of the indexed files (00 to 99)
Kind Regards,

Which images are you using ?

I used raw files (dd if=/dev/floppy of=floppy.img ; or created by mtools), converted to HFE format, and readable with the HxC converter.
I renamed them as requested, to be indexed.

The bootloader and firmware (3.0.8.2a) are the latest for Gotek (as specified in the documentation).
I've put the config file for indexed mode

I will test it on a PC to see if it works and will go back to you.

PS: I've also ordered a SPI 128x32 display to see what happens.
Kind Regards,
Xavier Miller

Is the korg trying to read the disk ? The green led should lit when you try to read the image.

Hope that this is just a typo. Only I2C/IIC are currently supported

This is a typo : it's a "0.91" IIC I2C Serial SPI OLED LCD Display 128x32 3.3V/5V AVR PIC STM32 Arduino" item on ebay

Hi!

I am testing on a PC before to test it on my synthesizer and still cannot read the images.

I created 2 images files with HxCFloppyEmulator, 1.44 PC diskettes, with 2 different contents.

I loaded the firmware HXCFEUSB_V3_0_33_12a.UPD with the related config file for indexed mode

The drive has a S0 jumper enabled. The green led is lit, and the display shows 00 or 01 following the selection buttons.

But when I try to read the diskette, I have that:

Code: Select all

$ mdir
Can't open /dev/fd0: Aucun périphérique ou adresse
Cannot initialize 'A:'
and dmesg shows

Code: Select all

[  332.749045] print_req_error: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
[  332.749049] floppy: error 10 while reading block 0
What's wrong?
Kind Regards,
Xavier Miller

For PC you must use the S1 jumper.

And if the green is always lit, please reconnect the floppy ribbon to the other side.

It's working on the PC !

I am using a raw image and can at least dir:

Code: Select all

$ mdir
 Volume in drive A is TFD-00P    
 Volume Serial Number is 1C51-18CB
Directory for A:/

PRELOAD1 PCG    261901 1995-11-15   0:00 
PRELOAD1 SNG    476612 1995-11-15   0:00

Now on the Trinity, we are going further : in Disk mode, I can see the contents of each diskette.
But when I want to load a file, the synth complains "Medium changed".

I cannot do any action except refresh the file list.

The config file is the default for indexed mode, the jumper is on S1 as requested on the support page.

What info do you need to help me?
Kind Regards,
Xavier Miller

Try to add a jumper to the "MO" jumper position.
