There is also the ZoomFloppy with IEEE connector soldered on. It pretty much is a IEEE/USB bridge, as it does allow you to access the drives from another computer, either from an emulator such as VICE or with the file/disk copy programs that come with the OpenCBM software. And a ZoomFloppy is cheaper. I did in fact try a ZoomFloppy with a 8050, but all floppies I wanted to copy had too many read errors. I didn't try a supposedly-good floppy at the time, but I know that sort of thing worked with a 1541 and a 1571. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- There's no point being grown-up if you \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- can't be childish sometimes. -The 4th Doctor Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-04-14 22:00:35
