I did the following: I have a C128DCR equipped with SCPU128, RL, and FD2000 
(all bought used on Ebay and alike), and I wanted to have the internal 1571 
be JD, too. Maybe one or two years ago when it was still possible to get 
something from Maurice I ordered this chip, but I ran a "backup" in the drive 
until I received the real chip after some months. I never bothered to burn a 
"backup" or buy a chip for the C64 or C128 mode, though, since both the RL 
and SCPU already have a copy, and usually at least one of them can be active 
without breaking compatibility with a program or game I want to load.
