I recently sold a C2N232 interface to someone in Germany. When he plugged it into cassette port #1, the computer crashed and sometimes went to the machine language monitor. A normal tape drive works in both ports, but the C2N232 only works in port #2. Does anyone have an explanation? The computer is a North American PET2001N32, and he uses it with a 220->110 volt transformer that has enough wattage (400 VA). The only electrical differences between the C2N232 and the tape drive should be that the C2N232 takes some power from the +5V line all the time, while the tape drive might not, and that the cassette motor power line is not connected to the C2N232.
