GOTEK Floppy Emulators in Classic Macs?

Recommended Posts

I did some searching, but didn't get much finding... So does anyone have experience with the GOTEK Floppy Emulators and the spiffy FlashFloppy firmware for them?

 

GOTEK:

GOTEK Floppy Emulator @ Amazon

 

Firmware:

FlashFloppy Wiki

 

I just purchased one (not delivered yet), but I'm interested to see if I can use it with my Mac SE FDHD. My search results included some comments about the GOTEK, but I couldn't tell if they were talking about Mac use or some other retro-computer. So, if you know anything about using one with a Mac, I'd be interested to hear about it.

 

Thanks,

Tom

Sadly not - we'd all have them if so :)  I use one in an Amiga 1200 and it is rather useful.

Bummer. I kinda expected that was the case, but since I saw some comments on them in my searches, I was a little hopeful.

 

That's OK. It'll be a useful tool in my retro-computing toolbox, just not for my Mac SE.

Wow, I'm sure out of date-- these GOTEK floppy emulators are neat looking!

 

Once I've saved up some money in my vintage computing fund, I ought to get one!

I have Goteks with FlashFloppy installed in a couple Tandy 1000s and they do a great job, pretty much zero complaints. I do *highly* recommend the OLED Display Mod, it's literally plug-and-play outside of having to hack a larger hole in the case.

I kinda wish they would just integrate the display mod, the speaker mod, and the encoder mod into a new model and sell it complete. But for $30, one can hardly argue with the results.
