Well, I can't be certain, of course. I've seen a whole lot of hacks, though, and if this is one, it is a very good one. Especially in the mounting of the ports in the back. Either way, as the picture demonstrated, a set of three wires run from the IEC ports to the datasette port. This set of wires has been cut cleanly, rendering them useless. My question is more this: Whether it was Commodore, or a previous owner, what was this person up to? Is such a hack even POSSIBLE in a 710/720? Can Commodore Serial disk drives be driven from the lines in the datasette port?!?! - Bo -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Professor Dredd Sent: Monday, April 23, 2001 5:15 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: IEC CBM 720 Hard to tell from your pics, Bo. Almost looks like it might be a hack.
