Hej Ruud

I was thinking of building a short cable with a 128 mobo-connector (I 
could probably pick one up at a local electronics store ( in 
one end and a 25-pin Dconnector in the other. But I need to start with 
brushing up on my soldering, it's been way to many years since I used a 
soldering Iron. :-)

Unless any of you guys would consider doing this rather small project for

Hallo Mikael, 

> What pins of the internal connector should go to what pin of the 128D's 
external connector? 
That is a very easy one. The mobo of a 128 is exactly the same as the one 
of a 128D. the only differences are the used connectors. Just solder a 25 
pins D-connector right on the original connector of the 128-keyboard. A 
nicer way is to desolder the counterpart of the 128 mobo and solder the 
D-conector to it first. In this way the 128 keyboard can be used for both
