Hi Riddick48, […]
You don't need to manually *copy* anything.
Make sure your USB drive is inserted, then run USB_Floppy_Emulator_1.40i, you'll see at the right side, floppy slots' list like: 000, 001, 002.
Start from 000 and right click on it, choose "Write image file" and point your 1st setup image of MS-DOS, then continue with 001, right click on it, choose the 2nd image of MS-DOS installation files, then 003, till you're done.
Then, reboot your PC and make sure the first boot device is "Floppy". The digital led on your Gotek should remain 000 (as you wrote the first bootable image to 000 slot), during setup process it'll ask for the next diskettes, whenever such message appears, you'll just increase the digit on Gotek. Good luck.
Hi dear Deskar,
thanks for your kind reply.
I downloaded and installed the Ipcas software, on both the computers I own, one with Windows 10 pro 64 bit, and the other with Windows XP.
On both I have the same error: when I go to download the image file on slot 001, the program replies:
"000 floppy disk block, surpass teh biggest capability - Try or not"
With this problem, I still have not been able to use my Gotek
Of course it doesn't.
i can download no image to usb pen.
Does it happen to you too? Will it be a software bug or am I doing something wrong? I followed the installation of the program to the letter and then the formatting of the usb pen.
For information, I list below some data on Gotek and the PC in which it is mounted.
Gotek model SFRC922D; jumper set to the SO position (it is correct for Dos system?)
PC: IBM PC / AT 80387
Bios: American Megatrend v.3.31a
OS: currently MS-DOS 5.00
Processor: AMD Athlon XP
Total memory: 256 MB / 166 hz DDR 3
Hdd ide Master: 80 GB
Hdd ide Slave: 156 GB
Thanks in advance for the help that I hope you can give me.
A big hug, Tony.
