From the SWoC: 1571-II Not known to exist, but there is a mention of it in a very strange place: 1541-II power supplies, as reported by Ron Slaminko, so Commodore must have for a time considered producing such a unit. If it existed at all, it would have most likely resembled a 1541-II with drive electronics based on the 128DCR's internals, according to Nicolas Welte; this means a single chip 5710 instead of the regular WD1770/6526 controller combination and an integrated R/W amplifier chip like the 1541-II. As this is only one extra chip on the board, it would probably have fit into the same case without difficulty, but no one can confirm if Commodore even got it to prototype state. -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + .
