Hi again.

Ok, so I put this firmware UPD file at the root of the USB stick an test (after having removed the previous UPD file)?

I did that, and it doesn't work either:
- I can read DS disks
- I can't read SS disks

I'm waiting for new a 34-pin disk ribbon cable.
Maybe it's a problem with it ?

You didn't update the firmware.
Please read the procedure : https://hxc2001.com/docs/gotek-floppy-e ... pdate.html

Hi Jeff

I updated the firmware as you mentioned.
But I can't read single sided disks either, nor double sided disks anymore...

I have also changed the 34-pin ribbon cable for another one, and the result is the same.

I have made a video of what happen:

Do you have a new idea to test ?
