Re: Gotek drive in ql help needed

Hi all
Someone on a different post mentioned using ipcas software to format the USB stick into a disk format but I have searched for the software but cannot find it anywhere to download unless anyone knows where to find it.

Gotek drive in ql help needed

Hi all
I have a dual floppy drive and a spare gotek drive I was going to use it by swapping one floppy drive out putting the gotek in so I can transfer software off the gotek to a floppy.
My question is what do I need to put on the USB pen drive so the ql will recognize it.
Many thanks

Re: QL wont work

Hi all
I have tried what it says in the ql service manual about no sinclair screen and tested D26,C41,C38 and C42 which all checked out apart from D26 which instead of showing 12v is showing 21.5v.
many thanks

Re: QL wont work

I have replaced the regulator which is now showing correct voltages and it now tuned in but only to a black screen.
