[Howto] How to use IEEE drives on x64/x128

You want to use an IEEE drive (i.e., CBM 2031, 2040, 3040, 4040, 8050, 8250, or SFD 1001) with your x64 and/or x128 emulator. Anyway, the appropriate settings in Settings/Drive Settings are grayed out.

To be able to use an IEEE drive, you need to enable IEEE emulation for the emulator. To do this, follow the following steps:

  • Download the IEEE 488 ROM image from the CBM archives (formerly known as FUNET)
  • Attach that image with File/Attach cartridge image/IEEE488 interface image.
  • Make sure you have a one-drive system only (that is, go to Settings/Peripheral Setting, uncheck "use IEC device" for all devices, go to Settings/Drive Settings and select "Floppy type" as "none" for all drives other than drive 8.
  • After this, all drives can be selected in x64 and x128.
