Give your Commodore 64 new life with an SD card reader (stevehanov.ca)

I have one of these devices, also got it from Jim Brain; worked wonderfully, until I sucked the (way too long) power cord into the vacuum one day when I didn't notice it was hanging down off the desk. Still need to figure out how to put it all back together. In the meantime, I just use my C64 with MSSIAH as a MIDI synthesizer...still need to install the SID2SID so I get six channel stereo sound.

Old machines have so much character and charm. I find myself browsing old-computers.com pretty regularly, and if I don't stop myself, I go searching eBay for the more interesting ones.

The 1541 Ultimate SD Card drive is worth checking out:


It is emulating a complete 1541 floppy drive and should have pretty good compatibility with demos.

Did he say "Just Bing it"??

someone has to make a tape drive emulator for it, no fun in looking for workable games on a SD card :)
