Thank you for the information. As I finished the 4101 chip replication,
I ordered a PCB to connect the actual floppy so we will see if the
termination in the floppy changes anything.

Can you tell with which revision of C65 did you test the cable? It might
be as well a problem with early disk controller chip revisions.

Also, did you test it with 1565 attached, or also without it attached
(just the cable plugged into the C65 - just like I am doing right now)?
