Hi everyone. I've just got hold of my first 1571 and it has some problems. Startup is fine, but when I try to load the directory, it gets a little way into the listing (using the plus/4's DIRECTORY command) but then the machine crashes with all sorts of random errors (usually ending up in the Monitor). The problem is not with the plus/4, because it works fine with 1541s and indeed the 1551, but I am curious as to how incorrect serial protocol can actually crash the host computer... any ideas? Being a 1571, most of the parts (6502, 6522, 6526) are fairly common so I have high hopes of repairing this unit :-) Richard. - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
