    Yup, absolutely. Though, not everyone is a programmer so not everyone can fix the errors. In fact, the guy who seems to sell PetSD's has an extensive blog on what the issue is but similarly, has no...

    Absolutely, though I actually modded a commodore tape deck with a 3.5mm jack so I can use that to load tape based games.

    This is for loading disk based games.

    Check on ebay, you're looking for a "616B jack". You might have to trim a little bit when you're putting it on to keep it from breaking, as they're extremely fragile. Maybe buy two just in case :)

    I thought the OP said, in the first post, they had a 2/83 and 2/84. I also have a ii/83 and a 2/84, and the 2/84 (both the regular and the 2x) had two custom gate array chips on it (81-194, 81-189)...

    One thing to note also is that the 2/84 has some custom programmed chips that aren't replaceable (except by taking from another board) vs the ii/83 which are standard off the shelf parts. it's...

    Hah, that made me laugh! Besides, they do take a break from replacing capacitors to tell you how their computer was the 'way ahead of it's time'.... even 35 years later when no-one cares. :)
