Hey guys, i have a problem with the GOTEK drive. Flashed the drive initially with v0.11 firmware.
Next i prepared a usb drive 2gb. Drive reconizes the .dsk images. The files in the dsk image can be loaded, no problems here. But when i change the images, it writes to the GOTEK (image.cfg) and frome there i cant get the disk to read again. The msx says "disk offline"
I tried different firmwares, different usb sticks(1gb, 2gb all fat32 formatted). My msx is a 8245. Original drive works perfectly.
Now i'm kinda stuck with it. Anyone any ideas?

Yes, i have. Just like i said, when it writes "image.cfg" (last used image) the fun is over.

What is your Gotek's jumper configuration? Also try downgrading the firmware and see if that solves the problem.

You can't use PC drive (or Gotek) directly on a NMS8245.
You need to modify ribbon as explained here :

Thanjs for the reply, but all of that is good. ICAN get the directory to see. The problem occurs when i start loading a file or write to the GOTEK. Tried both jumpersettings jc open and jc closed. Default drive 0

So you did modify the cable as explained in the pdf Fabf posted?
Perhaps you can doublecheck the connections of the cable. It could be the side select is not working.

I have an adapter made by Omega, and a modified flatcable. Both the same results
