So, we learned that there is a fundamental flaw with the -03 ROM. This is not surprising, because I've read previously that the 1581 doesn't always behave correctly with the VIC-20. I haven't experienced any problems myself, but I haven't used my 1581 much. Spiro, maybe you should repost your BASIC program after fixing the bugs that Andrew reported and fixed. Also, the program wrote 16 kilobytes to the file: 8 kilobytes of payload and 8 kilobytes of garbage. Theoretically, the $c000 ROM could be at fault. You could dump it as well and send it to me, to rule out that possibility. But I really doubt it, because mask ROMs shouldn't die that easily, and the drive works with the -05 ROM.
