Floppy cable connector for SY77

Unread post by Studiostriver » Fri Aug 23, 2019 10:27 pm

Hi to all.

I bought recently Gotek floppy emulator flashed and ready to be connected with 34 to 26 pin connector,but I need 24 pin connector cause for some reason one that was in my SY77 was soldered on one side directly to original floppy drive.

So in order to put it here I need 26 cable connector that will fit perfectly to board and on other side to modded Gotek.

If there is anyone who swant to sell it ,have spare and can ship it to Europe please let me know?

Or if anyone can give me advice which will fit and were to buy one on ebay or any other store that shipping to Europe?

Kind regards to all,
Dado.

This is the way they were made by Yamaha, as they did with the LCD screen as well.

Edit: you need this

keep in mind, depending on the size of the gotek you may need to cut holes in the back of the floppy drive holder
for the adapter to fit through, I have this adapter for both of my SY77's running floppy drives.

Best of luck with your adapter.
Depending on the size of the floppy, drive you may have to cut holes through the back of the
drive holder for the cable to go though. (i had to with both of mine)

After some time installation went fine,and I configured FF.cfg and right DOS Floppy in HxC. Works like a charm. I had small mind games with adjusting jumpers on Gotek right,but after some time I finally figure it out.
