Gotek SFRC922D

Is the USB Floppy Disk Emulator


Installed the FlashFloppy Firmware, works very well!

How does it work?

Copy files to FAT32 USB drive in the following way:

DSKA0000.img  Bootable disk image
DSKA000*.img  other images
FF.CFG  floppy emulator configuration file
Manifiest.txt   index of images on disk

Turn on Tandy with USB drive inserted, make sure 000 is selected before POST, and system will boot into DOS.

Press two circle buttons to toggle prev/next image. Image switching is instant.

Purchase a Gotek SFRC922D, flash FlashFloppy Firmware on it by way of using this win32/en.stsw-stm32080.zip to flash the image located in win32/flashfloppy_v0.9.24a.zip.

Set the jumpers the way outlined in the video…


Follow the video, pretty easy to work out.
