Hi, I recently got a C64C plus VC1541 (not VC1541-II!) from ebay, and it shows the following symptom: when I connect the new C64C with the VC1541, when I start loading anything from the disk, the C64 resets and the floppy hangs. So far so bad, I thought this is either the floppy or the C64 hardware. Now when I replace the C64C with another C64C, it works. But, using the broken setup, when I replace the VC1541 with another VC1541-II, it also works! Anyone has an idea here? Both new (C64C and VC1541) have seemingly unbroken warranty seals - so it seems no hardware tinkering. Only the C64C had a plug on the tape connector with a resistor between the two outmost pins. It does not matter, however, whether this is plugged in or not. Another question: The new C64C has a serial number in the 100000s and an old-style (like my original C64) power supply. The other C64C has a brick-style power supply, it has a serial number in the 500000s. The pins in the power plugs of those power supplies are different. Can I actually exchange them? Many thanks!
