Does any such device exist or is in the works? I see those mentioned in the thread but none are very Gotek-like which is what people are asking for.
I mean, my PCB will do exactly what you want, the only issue is the lack of a button to switch images. You could also swap SD card or USB flash drive with one per image, though I need to fix a firmware bug I know of where it sometimes won't rescan when a drive is unplugged/replugged.
Other than that (or if all your images are on one drive), you'd need to send it a command over the USB port (which simulates a serial port, allowing for a command line interface).
I was working on adding some support for CrystalFontz USB LCD screens (with buttons) so it could have an out-the-box GUI for people who want that, but it's been on the back burner a little since I'm working on other compatibility features just now (like increasing compatibility with some older 386s and adding support for UHD floppies like ZIP disks, which is something that's useful to some people). The main thing that makes it a bit of a pain is that they use a FTDI USB to serial chip, instead of a chip that implements the official USB serial adapter protocol, so I need to write a driver for that.
