But what about using a SD-card or something > else? I'll be interested in following this for results, but my PET gear is older - I have several 2040s that were field-upgraded to 4040s. Once you get things well along, I might try to see if I can get what you have working with a 2040/3040/4040 board. I even have a spare 4040 mainboard I bought back when they were new with the hopes of building my own mongrel single-drive 4040 because I could not afford a $2000 disk drive when they were new. I did get a Shugart floppy and built a compatible power supply, but I was stumped by the additional cost of the CBM analog board that sits on the drives. It would be nice to turn that board (that cost me $350 nearly 30 years ago) into something useful. So I look forward to hearing of progress on this project and good luck! -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-05-06 17:21:15
