Just for those who are not familiar at all with the C128D: the controllerboard 
for the the single drive and the one of the C128D differ at least in size and 
the way they are powered. 

In Germany the C128DCR is refered to as C128DB. I don't know if the B is 
original as they nicknamed it the "C128D Blech" (blech is German for "tincan").
Here in the Netherlands I and my friends always used the name C128DB as well. 
But living so close to Germany and everyone reading "64-er" we can have 
imported this name without knowing it was the wrong or right.

Groetjes, Ruud
