Hallo Nick, > Would the 1571 be a better starting point considering the larger ROM I forsee two problems: - the 1571 isn't that common, a lot of people have troubles already to find one for normal use. - the larger ROM means I have to replace original code by my own one. That could mean I accidently removed code that some programs rely on: I loose compatibility. > (standard pinouts) available Then please check out a 1541-II: you can put a 27256 in it and use its complete range without any soldering! The extra 16 KB means I can leave the original code almost intact > a 2.5" HDD could be made to fit. As the 1571 can contain a 5.25" drive, I don't see any reason why it cannot contain a 3.5" HD. 2.5" HD's are rare, especially the bigger ones. So I presume it is an type error :) ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
