Amiga External Gotek USB Floppy Disk Emulator Drive.
Great for adding a USB Gotek solution to your Amiga as a second drive so you can backup your floppies or boot from USB (as it is external it is a nice non-destructive upgrade to your Amiga and means you can keep your original existing floppy disk drive too!)
This is a USB floppy emulator fitted in a metal enclosure for Amiga 500 (see below note) / 500+ / 600 / 1200 / 2000 / 4000 etc using 23pin external Amiga Disk Drive port for power and data connection to drive. This means there is just a single neat ribbon cable with plug on the end.
This drive "just works" plug and play on most Amiga models and you can hold down two mouse buttons at boot to choose the drive to boot from, except for Amiga 500... This external drive does also works with Amiga 500 but you'll need a boot selector to convert SEL0 and SEL1 signals to make your DF1 bootable. (Gotek Drive will be recognised as second Floppy Drive DF1 when connected to the Disk Drive port and will be recognised as DF2 or DF3 when it is connected to another external floppy drive.)
Pre-flashed with FlashFloppy and ready to use. All you need to add is a FAT32 usb stick with your adf disk images on (not included but we show one in the photos so you can see it working).
The metal disk drive enclosure is in very good condition and looks nearly new with nice fresh white paint (hardly any marks, see photos).
This has been tested on an Amiga 4000 and Amiga 600 which you can see in the photos. The only minor thing you'll need to do to connect the drive is remove one port lug screw from your external floppy port as this drive uses a more modern plug which only fits your Amiga once the lug (or securing nut) has been removed from one side of your external drive port. (See last two photos showing this).
EXTRA UPGRADE OPTIONS - WE ALSO OFFER THE OPTION TO ADD FLOPPY DRIVE SOUNDS AND A ROTARY SELECT KNOB FOR EXTRA COST, SEE "ADD TO CART" OPTIONS.
Note: Booting directly from external floppy will depend on the games or software used, some are hardcoded to only run from DF0: however this has been tested in Workbench too as a 2nd drive and shows up as DF1: / DF2: etc no problem. Also can be used with applications like X-copy to backup floppy disks to usb or vice versa!
Condition is used/refurbished but in "almost new / like-new condition" (see photos).
