Be aware this hack does not make the drive completely invisible. Many fastloaders (speeders) will not work with the other lines still connected. When I made a switchbox, I had to switch all 3 main lines to make it compatible (DATA, ATN, and CLOCK). Leaving SRQ connected might be a problem also, but I'm not generally a 128 guy. -Pete > At 09:00 PM 9/3/2015, you wrote: > > http://alanger.net/comm/misc/big_page.html > > >>Hi if I remember right the European 128D is different than the U.S. made >>128DCR, but maybe some >>things are similar. >> >>I have 3 128DCR's and they all had the same problem. >>There was a guy in the U.S. Al Anger that did a hack years ago, what this >>does is you cut one trace and >>solder onto the pad of the cut trace and 2 other traces you solder wires >>onto, on the other end of these wires you solder the wires to a simple >>OFF/ON toggle switch.
