Gotek Flash Floppy Drive Emulator Review – Part of my Amstrad CPC Retro Restore

In this video we take a look at the Gotek Flash Floppy Drive Emulator. Gotek drives are essentially floppy disk drive emulators. Instead of using physical floppy discs, the disk images are stored on a USB memory stick as files. These images can be accessed by the Gotek and read and written to just as you would with a real drive. They are compatible with many computers including the Amstrad CPC, Spectrum, MSX, Atari and Amiga series.

This video shows an overview of the Zaxon flash floppy for the Amstrad CPC 6128 and Spectrum as well as two types of standard Gotek in a plastic case to use externally and on an Amiga mount for internal installation. The review covers how to set up, update the Gotek firmware and usage. It also shows the HxC compatibility mode for Atari ST and Amstrad as well as standard usage.
