I use(d) simple 8-bit interface http://c64.uz.ua/misc/inter.gif. At the C= side it needs only 8-bit port and 2 handshake lines (can be also hardware handshaked by CIA). PC side needs parallel port lines: 9 outputs , 4 inputs (with handshake lines ofcourse). 3 TTL chips used for decoupling the handshake lines from C64 synchronous to PC asynchronous protocol. So no matter what MHz you have at the both sides. The lines at the interconnecting cable are unidirectional, so buffering shoulnd'nt be problem (two extra TTL logic). The transfer speed is around 50Kbyte/s at 1MHz C64. BZ> Is anyone else in the same boat as I am? If so, what transfer cable scheme BZ> do you use? I wrote simple 1541 disk copier (to PC yet), so program can transfer whole 35 tracks to PC about 23 seconds. Nothing else developed except simple Load/Save routine. Marko also wrote a prlink implementation of it. -- Best regards, Frank mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
