Re: Master Compact Floppy Drive

Hi Steve If/when I get an internal Gotek sorted for my Master Compact, I may be willing to offer you my original Sony Master Compact drive. This isn't happening any time immediately as a nice guy on Facebook is offering to design and print me a nice Gotek bracket, but we're not finished yet as he's ...

Re: Wanted - Superior Master Compact Elite

I have Exile boxed for the Compact if you are interested, however I am not convinced the disk is fine. It boots but I failed to image it properly using Omniflop/Omnidisk, but this could also have been an issue with my PC setup. Has the manual and novella, with some writing in from previous owner. D...

Re: MMFS Development and Support

Hi everyone. I have a Master Compact and an SD2BBC from thefuturewas8bit which connects via the joystick port (which has some user port signals on the Compact, I believe?). It came with a Smart SPI ROM, but I'm looking to try MMFS out. Am I right in thinking the "T" release -> MAMMFS would...

No worries, I can either do the ROM for you on it’s own, or if you’d rather wait a little and make sure the Facebook offer pans out, just in case I need to do both for you. Either way is fine, just let me know.
I will let you know. Thank you again

Re: Gotek Bracket for Master Compact (3d printed?)

Yes, that's no problem, just use *DISC for DFS and *ADFS for ADFS. You can even configure which one the machine boots up in as a default. Having a single drive is the best option for you I think. Do you still want a dual drive cable anyway though? This thread includes some photos of inside the mach...

Re: Gotek Bracket for Master Compact (3d printed?)

The cable is non-standard and has to be made up by hand. However, I think I have a spare one which I'd be happy to send you. Similarly, if I have a spare EPROM I could make you a DFS rom. There are also other members on here who could do it. The pitfalls with the dual-drive setup are: 1) The fascia...

Re: Gotek Bracket for Master Compact (3d printed?)

If you don’t have one yet, I’d be happy to print you a bracket, and if you’re in need of a ROM burning, I can do that too. I wouldn’t ask for anything, there’s only a few pennies worth of plastic involved. This is really generous, thank you. A guy on facebook has also offered to print me one, so I ...

Re: Gotek Bracket for Master Compact (3d printed?)

Hi, Can you elaborate on the pitalls? Anyone selling DFS roms? If not, what's the cheapest source of a programmer and blank chips?
I'll need a new floppy cable too, the default one only has one connector. Acorn cheaped out there!
Thanks for all the responses so far

Gotek Bracket for Master Compact (3d printed?)

Hi there, New member with a BBC master compact rescued from a relatives garage. I've recapped PSU and cleaned the floppy drive heads and it's working great. Unfortunately, most of the original floppies have gone bad - some are fine but most are not - and it seems 3.5" disks for the compact are ...
