    from few weeks, I have got a VC-1541, the cream 1541, which has the long
    logic board. Well, I tried it on my "new" C64 C and found that it doesn't
    work: it turns on, ok, but when I try to access the drive, with ANY command,
    the drive doesn't reply and the red LED doesn't flash any time.
    I tried its ICs (the 6502, the two 6522s, the ROMs) on my good 1541 and
    found they work. I also connected the mechanism to the good 1541 and it also
    works fine.
    Do you know what can be the damaged IC? Surely it is one of these many
