FlashFloppy and the Sinclair QL

Postby handyandy69 » Sun Oct 28, 2018 5:20 pm

Hi, Has anyone successfully attached a Gotek drive with the Flashfloppy firmware to a Sinclair QL. Is there a blank disk file I can use as a template and what options are set up in the config file/jumpers.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers,


Andy.

Finally got around to adapting the Gotek drive and looking to use it to replace a failing drive in a Miracle Systems Twin-Drive unit (Please don't shoot me!).

The Miracle Systems drives are NEC FD1037A drives and have a slider switch at the back. I thought this would be the drive select but there appears to be several positions. Does anyone know what each switch position means. I want the Gotek as the main drive and the floppy as the 2nd drive.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, I don't suppose anyone has a blank disk image I could use with the Gotek or one with Quill, Abacus, Easel & Archive on.

Cheers,

Andy.
