Gotek Vs. HD 1.44 images

Postby docrv » Mon May 20, 2019 12:20 pm

Hi guys,

I need more space on my virtual floppies than the standard 700/800Ko
After reading, digging, searching, I just can't get my Gotek working with HD 1.44 images created with Hatari.

I have an atari STe
Gotek installed internally
E6 jumper soldered on my motherboard (allow HD, partially)
FlashFloppy firmware 1.2 or 2.9A (latest version)

FF.CFG
interface = shugart
host = unspecified


I tried to max-out values in IMG.CFG
# Mandatory: Number of cylinders (1-254).
cyls = 254
# Mandatory: Number of sectors per track (1-256).
secs = 256

I kept Bytes per sector by default
# Mandatory: Bytes per sector (128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192).
bps = 512


Any idea ?

Thanks for your help.

Hervé

You can create a special HFE images for DSDD drives, up to 3,42MB using a HxC Floppy Emulator Software.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

I have a Atari STe with TOS 2.06, 4Mb RAM, a GOTEK with FlashFloppy Firmware, the E6 jumper soldered... and i can´t read 1.44 .st or .hfe images created with HxC Floppy Emulator Software.
I´ve tried 2.50mb HSDD images, the system can read and write on them, but finally errors appear.

more ideas?

There is more you need to hack in your STe, then closing the solderpad, if you want it to read HD FDD and that includes Gotec emulated one. read i.e. here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/floppy/index.htm
or here https://blog.troed.se/2017/01/20/the-ta ... i-mystery/

You can use empty image, I've attached before. E6 in STe does nothing, except enabling HD format option in TOS, but the machine still lacks hardware to read/write HD disks. HD floppies have twice data transfer rate as double density ones.
