    Thanks Don.

    I was using an old version of this (pre Rhialto modifications).

    I would wait for BUSY=0 and /ACK=1 (as you are doing at the moment).

    Next, send the desired data byte out and wait for 0.5 us (data setup time).

    Tom,

    My guess about the isolated transformer secondary and capacitor would be a harmonic filter of some description.
