Re: Early Atari 520 ST Tos 1.00 Upgrade with external Gotek.

Hi all, I bought myself an early version of an Atari 520ST with Tos 1.00 with only external floppy SF354 from a childhood friend. I played with this baby like 25 years ago. The external floppy SF354 did not work anymore but the power supply and the Atari itself works like a charm. I have now for 3 ...

Re: Flash Gotek firmware without serial converter

Not exactly since HxC firmware can be installed over an flashfloppy gotek since some months now with just an usb stick (no serial or usb cable needed). So initial installation can also be done with an USB-A to USB-A cable with HxC too :wink: . Ah, good to know. But it doesn't seem to be mentioned n...

Re: HxC External floppy cable, works as A and B

No point with the firmware. The "problem" is the file selector usage.

Re: HxC External floppy cable, works as A and B

I was able to get the cable to work without changing any straps inside my 1040STF. The GoTek/HxC works well as drive B and the internal floppy is still Drive A. The only little issue I have is that I have no way to update the 'slots' in the HxC. I have to open my 1040STF and plug the HxC into the d...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

HxCmount can also be used more or less like this too. Did I miss something? To my understanding, HxCmount will also mount an image file from the USB drive; but as a hard disk. HxCmount does not allow you to directly access the file system on the USB drive, e.g. launch a PRG that you simply copied o...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

I didn't realize that the Browser was included within the HCXfloppyemulator. So all that is needed is having everything going thru their browser and place the result on the USB-stick. Nice way to do it. I suppose that it is best to choose a disk size that best resembles the amount of content. Yes t...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

If you want to use USB sticks directly as a mass storage medium (i.e. run PRGs from it directly), you need some solution like the Unicorn; which requires drivers, though. The big advantage of using a Gotek (with HxC firmware) is that from the computer's perspective it looks just like a floppy drive...

Just use the HxC Dos Floppy File Browser , create an 2.5MB floppy disk, add some files to this image (drag&drop) and then export it to the HFE file format :

You cannot use 1.44mb mode with an unmodified Atari ST. However you can use HxCMount for huge images. I have 1.44(!)

Re: Floppy image selection runnable from harddisk?

If you want to select the files on the fly, don't use the selector software and use an HxC with an LCD screen.
Set it in "normal mode" then you can select directly the HFE files from the device itself.
