I've heard nothing but good things about these drives! Looks nice =) - I've got a nice, new drive coming next week myself... but it's not Commodore related.

Ah the curse of collecting, I have this drive, the connecting cables and hell both a original "breadbin" C64 and the sleeker 64c model BUT I DON'T HAVE A SINGLE DAMNED DISK, not a single game or program lol. One of the days I have to get some media to actually try out my drive so I can confirm it works.  :rofl:

As a complete side note, something about load 8,1 "abcd.efg" really irked me because I was spoiled with the A8 and being able to just type L for load in DOS and then the filename - I didn't have manuals and this was before net access when I was toying around with the C64 so I guess that was really the main reason. I had two bricks with disks and had no idea how to load the damn thing.

Well if Commodore and Atari had kids it would probably look something like this

I'm the one with the case FULL of 5 1/4" C64 diskettes (came from the same customer at work but I got it last May) and no way to test them  ;)
