Hi. I have gotek with last stable version flashfloppy

Solved 2 days ago using this into ff.cfg. :

interface = shugart
host = msx

minus and spaces as show or don´t work. Using interface ibmpc fails like you: list using files command ok first time, but after that, obtain disk offline.

Thanks for your input.

On my gotek the interface = shugart is set by Jumper JC (open = shugart).

Can you tell me what schematic you followed for making the wiring between MSX and GOTEK.
Is this alright:

I see that pin 34 isn't connected. Doesn't the 8245 need this signal?

This is by the way my FF.CFG file:

hi

host = msx not MSX !!

I got the file from the 'MSX starterkit' downloaded from the Gotek site, so it's wrong in there.
I'll change the file and try again, thanks for your inout.

No, didn't fix it. I believe it has to be capital letters.
It says in the comments: #msx : MSX

no, no, is ok. Left - command. Right - Description. Look at other options.

Seems like a made an error.
The '1' on the connector MSX is on the other side.
I'll try again tomorrow.
