Is this true? André Fachat designed a IEEE-488 <-> IEC interface, I believe he has the schematics on the web. Requires two driver chips that you probably won't find though. The 64'er schematics were for converting the 1541 to IEEE-488, and I think they also published schematics for an IEEE interface for the C64. The best solution is probably to get an MSD SD-2 -- it has both IEEE-488 and IEC connectors on the back, and is 1541 compatible. The other option would be a 20/30/4040 or 2031 drive, which can all read 1541 disks (and vice versa). -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + .
