Just for who's interested, I have still lots of PCBs and parts lying around for the C2N232I, including the matching pre-machined little plastic cases. Unfortunately, it is not easy to build (aha, the third problem!), and I have no time doing so. Not to mention problems with todays laws regarding production and distribution of electronic equipment, which I can't fulfil. Those who tried to build it on their own know very well that it is quite tricky to assemble it without mixing up some parts. > I guess that I should revive the effort soonish, because my programming > software of the Vic Flash Plugin <http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/8bit/vfp/> > needs to load a multi-megabyte image file. I would prefer an "in-house" I justed wanted to answer that I never heard of this device, but after reading about it, I remember you talked about such a device long ago. Nowadays, there is also the Final Expansion 3 and other multi-cartridges for the VIC-20. Being very late to follow these developments, I just ordered empty PCBs from www.sinchai.de for the FE3 and found that some parts on it became obsolete already. I think I managed to source them and I'm curious how it will work for me. The big advantage, in my opinion, is the inclusion of a well working SD-card IEC device (SD2IEC) on the cartridge.
