I recently aquired an IDE interface for my C64 (IDE64). It seems to work fine, but there appears to be a problem with the built-in speed loader in an SX-64. I know the kernel ROMs are different, the question here is, does anyone know the differences bettween a real 1541 and the drive embedded in the SX? I haven't yet torn it open to look because it's a pain in the ass. If someone knows off the top of their head, great; otherwise, I'm going to have to tear my SX open. As for the IDE64, it's pretty slick. The IDE part worked the first time I plugged it in. I'm using an HP "Kittyhawk" 1.3" 20Mb IDE drive with it. The drive is a fraction of the size of the interface! This drive is smaller than most cell-phone batteries. -ethan - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail email@example.com.
