Hello William, >> The other question is, why use the 8250LP (and 8296D) an adapter >> board and the mircopolis RRIOT if an Tandon/Matsushita RRIOT exits? > > Commodore obviously used the EPROM adapter and an existing surplus > 6530 rather than make more 6530s. Okay, this could be a cause. We know the Tandon drives are rare. In the first time Commodore selled more Micropolis and MPI drives. Later they used Matsushita drives with the same code as Tandon drives. At this time no more 6530 for Tandon drives are produced. They used the 6530 for Micropolis with an additional eprom. > But, the 6530s are fully functional, That's an nice question. Did a 6530 for Tandon drives (901884-01) work in a 8250LP or a 8296-D? > and there may be versions with ROM contents that we do not have. That's bad ... 8-( > So check the part numbers on the 6530s with adapter boards. I've only see 901885-04 (Microplis drives with DOS 2.7). Did anyone find an other 6530 on this adapter?
