*** What is it? ***

The 1541-III is an SD CARD reader for commodore computers that emulates floppy disk drives like the 1541 and 1541-II. You can use this device to load games on a commodore computer without the need for a disk drive or cassette player. Unlike the latter, the SD card reader is far more reliable, and never again will your favourite game on disk or cassette stop working. Whats more, you can use an SD card (not included) up to 2GB in size allowing thousands of games to fit on one card.

It loads .d64 files (images of a commodore disk) which are easy to download on the web. It is compatible with all machines that used 1541 or 1541-II disk drives such as: C64, C128, C128D, C16, VIC20, SX-64 etc.

*** Incredibly easy to use ***

Included in the sale is my "beginner's guide" which takes you through the steps as easily as possible, from how to load games on to the SD card from your PC, to how to load a game on the commodore. The commands are exactly the same as with a real 1541, but the guide explains them step by step in case you haven't used a commodore for some time and forgot how to use it. There is absolutely nothing you will have to figure out yourself to get this working on your commodore computer!

It has a jumper to enable the default device number to switch from 8 to 9 without any software or commands, just swap the jumper. This is useful if you want to use the 1541-III along side another disk drive (i.e. a real 1541 for transfering old disks) connected to the commodore at the same time. If this makes no sense to you, don't worry, you won't need it!

*** What's in the box? ***

A Brand New 1541-III board with all cables needed to connect it and beginner's guide which tells you everything you need to load a game and not much else!

Note, you will need to purchase an SD card separately (not micro SD, no larger than 2GB) ~£3-4 on ebay!

Also note, the standard pack contains fairly short cables assuming you will place the reader on top of the commodore as pictured. I will provide longer cables if requested (no extra charge), just let me know when you make the order.
