However I haven't checked or lookup up if cbmlink will support 8x50 drives or only knows about 1541, 1571 and 1581 drives. Perhaps Marko or Olaf remembers, without digging deep into the source code? If this option would work, it seems to be my best solution for the moment being. It would require me to wire up either a PET, CBM-II or theoretically a VIC-20 with the IEEE interface, a 8050 drive in one end and the C2N232I with standard serial cable in the other end. Steve Gray's suggestion using CBMXfer probably also is a working path, but I don't have a DB25-to-9 pin converter or serial cable readily available.
