Re: "Mageco" disk controler. [infos, Docs wanted]

Can give the layout files in Eagle 3.55 format or as PDF. And the ROM image too. Anything you need to build your own mageco.

Re: "Mageco" disk controler. [infos, Docs wanted]

It is interesting that the mageco IF works without any controller chip. Only done with LS logic.
As I had tested it worked very stable and not even slow.
But the DOS is some special kind you have to get used to first.

Email address for Didier? I have. But he is not with electronics.
If somebody could help me to get the IF running. I would send my PCBs for further testing. Also have the designs in Eagle here.

Re: "Mageco" disk controler. [infos, Docs wanted]

I had this interesting interface 10 years ago here for repair.
It was from somebody in France, (Bordeaux ?) but I don't remember the name.
I made a copy of the PCB, it was working so far and I can read the discs, but it doesn't write correctly.

Re: A Gaggle of ZX81's for sale

If anybody is wondering where this lot is gone: to me. I did not expect to win with that offer. First check: 5 are working fine, 1 is dead and the other 9 have the known keyboard problems. What would I do with 15 Zeddies? First I'll put them to the other 30 oder 40 Zeddies here. But the most are for...
