Hello,

got an interesting problem with my GDSF7: any time I connect a disk drive I get a "Disk Error (RDST)" message on startup. I tried another floppy drive from my Magic Drive and a new Gotek USB replacement, doesn't matter, same result, which leads me to assume something other than the floppy is fried. When the disk drive is not connected everything works fine, I can send and play games via parallel port.

Does anyone have an idea how to fix that?

Since I'm out of ideas I'm trying to replace the floppy controller, just ordered a GM82C765B replacement chip. It's available pretty cheap from Aliexpress, but will probably take ages to arrive.

Short update: GM82C765B replacement chip has arrived (from Ebay instead of AliExpress), exchanged the broken one and everything works. Yay. Very Happy
