The checksum is correct. The message is also correct, the drive reports itself as V170. The POKEs in your program are also correct, but instead I chose my favourite DOS wedge to read the error channel. So the rumors that a 1540 will work with a C64 that has the screen switched off are also true. BTW, a while ago I had a discussion with someone about the bug in the 1541 that causes empty sectors to get that 4B 01 01 ... pattern. We were guessing at what time that bug was introduced, and if the 1540 and 2031 also have that bug. In my opinion the 2031 should also be affected, since it was the first drive with single processor code in there. But I don't have a 2031 and I didn't check it on the 1540 yet. I'm going to do it on VICE's emulated 2031 right now :-) Nicolas - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail email@example.com.
