Commodore Amiga Floppy Disk Drive Emulation Options

Video of Amiga 600 connected to three floppy disk emulators (one at a time):

Raspberry PI drive
Modified Gotek Floppy Emulator
USB HxC Floppy Emulator

Showing one of the most loved and hated Amiga demos: 9 Fingers by Spaceballs. The demo uses two floppies and you can see how floppy swapping works.

Each emulator has its strengths and weaknesses, you can’t go wrong with either one. Raspberry PI drive solution is the most demanding, you must construct the interface board that connects Raspberry PI to Amiga. You only need to re-flash the Gotek drive and solder the connection pins on the PCB. With HxC you have no work at all.

Interestingly, each emulator uses different storage media: SD card on Raspberry PI drive, USB stick on Gotek, and nothing on HxC, because the disk image is streamed from PC.
