Lots more storage available than a single floppy and you don’t have to SneakerNet anything back & forth. :-) > > https://github.com/FozzTexx/ninepin The two parts to modernizing your Commodore setup are: 1. Getting original data off floppy disks 2. Using data on real CPU hardware but without a floppy drive. (The 3rd combination, using a 1541 drive with VICE or other emulators, is not well-supported and is not recommended.) ZoomFloppy or Kryoflux are the best options for #1. I don’t know the best options for #2 lately but SD2IEC and the 1541U2 are two common ones. -Nate Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2015-03-24 22:00:41
