Hi All, The method proposed by my project is to use the serial bus emulator on the PC to do the talking to the PC USB hardware. Commodore's Serial IEC is a Universal Serial Bus in the true meaning of the word as it communicates serially to many devices (drives, printers, and soon modems etc). The "new" USB is too fast for a 1MHz processor. Mr Rainer had an interesting discussion piece about the pros and cons in Go64, with a few calcs. Even the minimum spec of 1.2Mbps is hard to handle without additional hardware. My proposal is to let the PC to the hardwork as it already has the hardware and software support. All needed in the emulator is a way to send /receive from the PC drive. - Nick -----Original Message----- From: Bryan Pope [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Wednesday, 28 November 2001 12:29 AM To: email@example.com Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: USB-to-C64 ?
