Amstrad PCW 8512 8256 Floppy Disk Drive Emulator Gotek USB complete fitting kit.
This product includes the 34 > 26 pin adaptor, the Gotek floppy
emulator drive, OLED display and front faceplate (we do sell them all
separately too if needed).
Adaptor and complete fitting kit for swapping your internal floppy drive
with a Gotek floppy disk usb emulator drive in your Amstrad PCW8256 or
PCW8512 word-processor computer.
faceplate/bracket part is 3d printed, so has a few rough edges but as
you can see in the photos, they look very good and are a very secure and
non-destructive way to mount your Gotek drive. No mods, cuts or
alterations to your Amstrad casing are needed. Comes in black recyclable PLA plastic.
easy insert of USB stick (not included) and nice placement of the Gotek
buttons making it easy to press them and also see the display.
design of the bracket is not the normal one found online but our own
stronger custom design. It's the best one available for your PCW.
should fit well but some slight careful sanding or filing may be needed
due to slight variations in printing or old Amstrad cases warping/cases
being screwed together slightly tighter/differently etc.
does not fit Amstrad CPC or PCW9xxx computers, it only fits PCW8xxx
style Amstrads. Please see our other products for the Amstrad CPC
brackets and accessories.
JUST POWER UP THE GOTEK ONCE MOUNTED IN YOUR COMPUTER, OR YOU MAY BREAK
YOUR GOTEK DRIVE, MAKE SURE TO MODIFY AND HAVE THE RIGHT RIBBON CABLE
AND POWER LEAD READY FIRST. THE INTERNAL PCW POWER AND DATA RIBBON WILL
PLUG AND PLAY EXCEPT YOU MUST SWAP THE 5v and 12v POWER PINS, THE GOTEK
IS 5v ONLY SO MUST NOT BE POWERED WITH THE 12v WIRE.
