Hallo allemaal, Does a bitcopier exist for the PC/1541 using a X1541/XP1541-cable? If not, I'm playing with the following idea: Copy the data directly from port A while monitoring the signals for the steppingmotor, the "SYNC"- and "Byte ready"-signal at the same time. The only thing you have to do is to write a little PRG that does nothing else then turning on the diskmotor and moving the head in/outwards on command. At a higher level the PC could steer the stepping motor and taking control of the frequency-bits PB5 and PB6 itself. This could all be done only using the LPT-port. How does this sound? Last time I asked if someone could do me a favour by reading a techi doc about the 1541. I only forgot to mention where you could find it: http://www.homepages.hetnet.nl/~ruud2702/1541.htm Groetjes, Ruud - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
