FDX/SDX Drive Replacement - Gotek

Post by Dave » 16 Apr 2018 19:38

Hi guys,

if any of you have an FDX or SDX with legacy floppy disk drives fitted, you may be finding that the drives and/or media are well past their best.

It is now possible to replace the floppy disk drive(s) with a Gotek USB floppy drive emulator thanks to OpenSource firmware released by Keir Fraser. I have added one to one of my FDXs and it is working well - all for under £15 !
