c64-ready-for-2016.jpg

my c64 set up.  I just pulled it out of storage and feel 2016 is a great year to bring it back to life.  I have yet to power it up but I am was told there is a usb flash card adapter that goes with this

i forgot what it was called.

 

any suggestions?  

 

thanks in advance
Brent

SD2IEC is the name of the one I have.  Let me know if you decide to get one...as there is an image I can give you that will make it load a "fastloader" that actually works with no need for a cartridge.

Here is the one I have.  I don't remember what I paid for mine, but I got it several years ago.  It works great.

It will fit any C64.  It plugs into the disk drive socket, and then has a separate plug for power.  It works on VIC-20 and C128 too. 

 

Like I said, if you get one...I can hook you up with an image that has the fastloader and my favorite ROM files.

I just want to bring clients in and show them the c64 to show them what i'll be editing their video on lol

Fire it up!  I'll bet it works fine.  If not, I can help diagnose the issue.

Power cable into right side of the machine.  Video cable in the back.  Monitor on....computer on....cross fingers.  That's all there is to it.

Can you explain what your AV cable out of the C64 looks like?  Is it a single wire?  Or is it the Yellow/White/Red composite setup?  There's a few different ways you can hook it up, so I need to know what your cable looks like.
