is the drive ok bud?

whats your printer port settings in bios? when i say that though im assuming the machines bios got reset.:)

from what i remember the settings have to be the same as using a willem eprom programmer i think.

i dont use cbmxfer though,i used to use starcommander in dos for this(on a xp machine booted via floppy)...how much difference there is i dont know:)
