Well, don't worry about it. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there was
only one version of the 1551 ROM. These things weren't made for long
(rather like the computers) and barely saw any revisions. What I would
like to know, however, is if anyone has a pull-down version (ALPS
mechanism) of the 1551, rather than the twist-down (Mitsumi / Newtronics)
that I have seen in all the internet pictures. The plus/4 manual clearly
shows a pull-down 1551 in all its pictures, but as to whether such a
thing was mass-produced... there was quite a delay between the plus/4 and
Commodore actually releasing the 1551, so... ?
