I just bought a Gotek off ebay and I'm a bit stuck on what I need to do.
1. I've set the jumper S0 on the jumper switches that are visible, i.e not taken the Gotek apart.
2. The FDD cable is not going to be long enough so I'm looking to buy an extension, do I need one that has a twist or just a flat cable?
3. Do I need to flash the Gotek to some Atari format? There's loads of videos showing how to flash with a usb serial adabptor.
4. How do I prepare the USB so that I can copy (up to 99?) .ST images onto it? I've seen a number of videos where you press both Gotek buttons in, when I do that the LED shows "uPD" then when I release u56.
5.Is there a step by step guide for this, perhaps aimed at people who've never open a piece of electronics in their lives?
Help, my hair has nearly all gone.
