not being a PC owner ~ i'm comparing my amiga A500+ to the first stage here , this is my methods 1/ my 8296 has gone to a new home a few months ago ( domestics ) , but it's an 8000 with fancy casing , it seems that star commander is a tried & tested solution amongst PC types , the cable from that ends in a standard 6 pin din that gets plugged into a C64 drive, on my amiga i use ami-64link that also has a cable that ends same way , then i can access & transfer stuff to & from the C64 floppy drive quite happily to & from the amiga . on my 8096 alligator in service i've got a sipod cable , the cable plugs into user port and ends in a 6 pin din ~ the sipod prg turns the 8000 into an interface box to enable the C64/128 to use the 8x50 drives etc . just a matter of connecting the 2 cables via a jumper box or unpowered 1541 , 2/ big blue reader ~ 1581/FD-2000 then onto the C128D's internal 1571 , then that disk into my 4040 drive , jordi ~ posted VCD's off to you today , i'm hoping to get the backlog of disk copying & shifting started later this week , ( domestics permitting ) ------- http://members.tripod.com/~petlibrary http://www.icpug.org.uk/national http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/skyscraper/perl/316 Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
