I thought seeing as it is the 30th Birthday of our beloved Amiga, I would get round to fitting my Gotec Floppy to my A500. I have had this Gotek for a while just never really got round to fitting it, but I'm pleased I have as it's all working really nicely.

I like this solution as it does not involve modifying (destroying) the case in any way.

I miss the drive sounds though :(

That's a nice Gotek extension but this look somewhat scares me - like having a disk always half-hanging out of the drive... :p
You know there are "sound kits" for the Gotek, right? Or you can build one yourself for next to nothing.
Still, nothing like a real drive.

Nice job! That was a neat idea making it look like a floppy disk. :)
