I'm trying to connect Gotek drive to my CDTV using external caddy (amitek).

The drive has 3 digit LED display, after boot i can see F-F. When I insert Flash drive it detects images on it, I can navigate to a specific one, but the software doesn't start.

CD activity led flashes, but Gotek's activity led doesn't flash on start, nor indicating it's trying to read image when one is selected.

I have jumper on S0, tried with FF.CFG and without (firmware: FlashFloppy 2.13, working on A1200). Can't get it to boot from it.

Do I need any specific kickstart and mod to swap it as I find fit?

  • Have you installed firmware on your Gotek? Which one?
