They're all waiting for an EPROMmer whose schematics I've designed about a year ago, but never came to build it, let alone writing software for it ;) Still, I really miss a diskdrive for my PET's every now and then. (and old Commodore-hardware seems to be getting scarce on flea markets, even in Germany.) I really had a hard time last week, when a relative of mine said something like "Oh! If I'd knew that you were interested, I woulnd't have thrown away that 8296 with that 8250 diskdrive!". > (with my C64+IEEE488 there are no problems). > > Probably it's just a (hardware) driver, voltage level or cable > problem.
