I doubt that the uEIC can be used directly as I do not think there are GEOS configure files available for it. GEOS 2.0 would load from a real 1541 - 1571 - 1581 but because of the limitation of the kernel on the desktop it will only see something like 112 files (8 files in 14 pages). In any case refer to this thread. c-128.freeforums.net/thread/34/using-sd2iec-geos
My C128DCR has giving some problems. First the screen would not show in the 80C, then intermittently the C1571 would not read the diskettes, now at turn on the screen will show the green banner but not the "ready" prompt and I have to reset the drive for the "ready".
I was thinking about getting one of those Diagnostic Cartridges or any other diagnostic tools that you guys reccomend.
Are there any CRT files that I could copy to the C1541U-II for example? I am not incline in buying a disk since my drive is not really reliable now?
Powered speakers is what I was thinking myself. In any case now I have some ideas. The one with Commodore label would look cool though. Since they are for both PC and Amiga I should not have any major difficulties in making a cable. Let's see if I can find them for sale somewhere.
