As far as I know, host=msx is only needed to recognize single sided disks correctly. And that should be the only configuration you need.

what version of FF
use 2.14 if you can, also check your gotek if it's a new version other than SFR922... use version 3.. otherwise 2.14 works fine

I only use double sided disks formats , i flashed it to the last stable firmware i have the old gotek version the one you had to solder the headers for programming it with a stm32 ,but i did convert the dsk files to hfe with the hxc tool maybe there did go something wrong ,as i noticed the firmware now also reads img and dsk ,the strange thing is that it one time gives a disk offline and the next Moment a online
