Yes, the route to use CBM drives from the PC seems to be the exclusive route these days. But I am also looking into using the PC as a floppy drive for my PETs. I have done this over a serial line for my own 6502 operating system, so a server side is actually available. It's "just" a matter of writing an atmega client that works as drive and communicates with the PC via serial over usb. I even have an XS1541 here but didn't have the time... But since my homebuilt printer-port ieee488 interface for the PC broke, and I am using cn232 with my only PC left with a serial i/f, the pressure gets stronger...

As time goes by, it seems harder and harder to interface our modern computers with Commodore machines and drives. Our PCs no longer come with RS-232 or Centronics ports, which were used in the past to connect to IEC and IEE-488 drives. So yesterday I had a thought to utilize a GPIB to USB interface to connect our PET drives to a PC. Such interfaces are available from multiple vendors in about $150 price range, which may not be very cheap, but still quite affordable. I don't know if anyone had gone this route before, and if so, with what results? Regards, Michau.
