Happy to test for you, but I won't be able to test until later tomorrow.

I've got a few GoTek drives, and currently have FlashFloppy firmware installed on them all. I don't have the HxC firmware, but would plan to install on one drive to help with testing.

I'm not quite sure why the original content of the posts I split out has been edited, but just to note that it has.

Sure they was edited. These messages became meaningless/off-topic since they have been moved out from their original thread.
(I couldn't delete them...)
