If you want to try EMUTIL, it sounds like you can use your 2031 as a go-between. Download the program onto a PC -- transferit to a C64 using one of the zillions of PC<->C64 transfer methods, then use a C64 and 1541 to transfer it to a 1541 disk, then load it from the '41 disk using the 2031. I'm afraid I can't try it with my own C900 disks, because I don't HAVE any. Heck, I'm still working on my power supply issue with my C900 -- building that clock circuit appears to be my only remaining step to bliss. Even then I'll only have whatever is on the hard drive. :( - Bo > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com > [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Jan Janssen > Sent: Thursday, August 18, 2005 4:36 PM > To: email@example.com > Subject: AW: Does a nibbler for a CBM 8250 exist? > > > Hi Bo, hi Ken! > > I have not tried it yet.
