Gotek Mount

The Gotek drive is, for retro computers lovers, one of the most useful product: you can replace a floppy drive with a device that can not only emulate it but gives the possibility to load, using an USB pen drive, every floppy image you want.

Using the Gotek you can save your aging floppy drive and disks, and make your experience better, bringing your retro computer to a futuristic level of use…
So you just need to buy a Gotek drive, change the firmware, modify it adding an oled screen and maybe a buzzer and a rotary encoder, print a support and replace the old unit (possibly without cutting the original case).
It’s not hard but requires some work.

For the Gotek hardware there are two firmwares:
The first is HxC, it supports hundreds of computers, costs around 10 Euro and is available at https://hxc2001.com/store/; the second is FlashFloppy, free and open source.
Flashfloppy is available on GitHub https://github.com/keirf/FlashFloppy, actively developed with a growing list of supported systems.

For each computer you need a custom mount, different for each hardware Gotek configuration: if you keep the original LCD screen you will use a mount, if you have an OLED screen another, and so on.

I’ve created this page to have a comprehensive guide for all the mounts I have found (but please write me if you find more!).

I’m selling many of this mounts on ebay, contact me if you need one that is not available.
