\Fast page mode RAM is fast page mode ram, no matter where it's put (i.e. in your stock c64, on a 30pin simm, 72pin etc). Using a 256k 30pin simm should be real easy. just act like its an 8-bit-wide dram and hook accordingly EDO can also be used exactly like fast page mode mem as far as the c64's concerned. its when SDRAM comes to that gets things interesting ;) Refreshing most 256k chips/simms, by the way, is exteremely simple. All you have to do is flash CAS (or Ras? cant remembr) alone, and it'll refresh the correct row, and update the counter accordingly (one that's INCIDE the ram) Gawd, I cant type today. :) -David On Thu, 18 Jan 101 email@example.com wrote: > Hallo, > > I've expanded some C64's and C128's by replacing the original 4164 by > 41256's.
