since this morning, my 1040 STE does not read any games anymore. I loaded International Karate using my Gotek, just before the game started some bombs were displayed and the STE crashed. Since then, when I start my STE, the STE tries to boot the floppy (Gotek) then display the desktop but with no floppy icons (the desktop is empty). I tested the Gotek on a 520 ST and it is working fine. So the problem comes from somewhere in the STE motherboard. I think the problem may come from the C302434 (AJAX) which is the floppy controler, I tried to reseat it but no luck.
As the STE behave like if there was no floppy drive connected, do you think the issue may come from the C302434 ?
If yes, do you know where I can buy one ?
Thanks a lot !
