hi again dear MSX community,
Thanks for all your guidance during this project...
seeing that amiga and atari st users started heavily implementing gotek drives in their machines...
also, it is quite convenient for the time being, but I am not sure if it can remap its inputs and outputs to work with the format in my machine, as all gotek drives I found were of the PC variety.
1)Can the gotek drives remap its inputs and outputs to work with other floppy drive formats?
2)If so how?
thanks a lot to the gr8 MSX community for their guidance and love Big smile

Check FlashFloppy project

It can turn your Gotek drive into whatever you want (well, sort of...:-))

I washed it with isopropyl alcohol last night to remove the flux residue of the board and to clean it a bit from dust and stuff like that.

Some of the add-on boards (I forget which ones) in mine didn't take too kindly to Isoprop. ItJust be careful. My add-on board coating started to melt..

If you really need an original floppy-drive for the AX350II, then I might be willing to trade my drive. It don't use it, I use MegaFlashRom mostly, so I disconnected it. It is untested though.

you gave me an offer for the floppy...
