Gotek Floppy disc / floppy disk drive USB emulator for computers including Acorn, Amstrad, Amiga, Apple, Atari, Spectrum, DOS / IBM XT PC, MSX etc etc .
Update your retro computer with fast loading and the facility to store all of your disks on one USB drive and quickly press the buttons to switch disks for faster loading and saving.
Also helps preserve any of your original floppy disks as you can copy them to USB or download thousands of other software titles online and run those on your machine.
A great way to also transfer software from your PC via USB flash drive to your retro or older computer (this could even be used in a new computer's 3.5" enclosure/bay)!
This is the latest Gotek floppy emulator for retro computers with 3.5" floppy disk drive bay, or for use externally or in a caddy. This will also work Amstrad / Spectrum or computers with 3" disk drives or old PCs with 5.25" drives and such. You just need the correct floppy IDE or Ribbon connection cables. Most computers can use the ones supplied within the machine and you can do a straight swap out for the existing old floppy drive (such as in DOS PCs and Amigas) but some machines may need extra leads/connectors (such as Amstrad CPC), please check your device.
Flashed with current latest FlashFloppy firmware (https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy) and ready to use. Once installed, just insert a USB memory stick with your disk images/files on. Your computer will then boot from this floppy emulator or can also use it as a second drive.
Photos also show this fitted and working with an Amstrad PPC640 IBM compatible computer which uses DOS. Another image shows how the case can be removed and then this can be fitted to an Amiga with the use of a mounting bracket, see our other products on Simulant shop for such brackets.
