Thank you for your very detailed analysis. When I archived the ROMs a decade ago, I wasn't an expert of the serial bus protocol. You obviously are, given your involvement with the OpenCBM project. I think that this could be checked fairly easily by installing the -03 ROM to a 1541 (for example, using Nicolas Welte's flash ROM card) and seeing if it works in a multi-device setup. Given that Andrew reported the drive to work as the only device on the bus, a ROM defect seems unlikely. Andrew, could you write a small program to copy the $e000-$ffff ROM to disk, and send the file to me or Spiro? Or you could compare it yourself to the copy of the -03 ROM on zimmers.net. There is a ROM checksum, but the algorithm is very simple, so a defect can go unnoticed. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
