Good question. I’ll ask since that could be implemented with a line in the config file. Keir is constantly updating the firmware to add extra features so it might be there already.
> 3" and 3.25" were also almost completely compatible with the "standard" 34 pin interface. Although I remember one drive that had 5V and 12V swapped in its 4 pin power connector! And my 8" drives did not standardize power connector and requirements.
Early Amigas had +5 and +12 swapped . I didn’t realise this and the first time I hooked up a Gotek to my A500 it cooked the USB stick but thankfully didn’t kill the logic on the board.
