Earlier this morning my 1541-II started to give me all sort of issues when trying to load games... for example:

?FILE NOT FOUND ERRORs

Running the usual Load "*",8,1 only that when I press RUN it tells me "READY" again, or else a Sytax Error.

Now suddenly, it is working perfectly.

I hate these kind of issues because it is pretty impossible to pinpoint where the problem could be coming from, but any help would be appreciated.

PS. Obviously, there is no guarantee that this will happen again!

Probably a bad connection in the IEC cable.

Well I have been using the same IEC cable for 2 years or so...

maybe the head needs alignment?
