A naive question perhaps

Post by Gyro Gearloose »

On a 128D or DCR, when in 64 mode, can the drive be used as a 1571? I am not able to turn on my 128D at the moment. It's a mess.

For example, would GEOS recognize the drive as a 1571? GEOS 128 must obviously do so.

AFAIK, only JiffyDOS allows you to do that but I could be completely wrong.

GEOS would need Configure to set the drive to 1571.

As far as I know you can access it as a 1571 in C64 mode, but you don't have access to the "fast" serial mode.
