IEC-ATA is a hard drive controller for the Commodore IEC serial bus.
It enables all computers that has an IEC serial bus port (e.g VIC-20,
C-128) to use cheap, easy to get ATA hard drives (also called IDE hard
I always wanted to have a harddrive in my C64 and then in my C128.
First, in 1998 when I just started my adventure with electronics
with programming 6502 started 4 years earlier :), a friend sent me
about connecting ancient PC MFM harddisk controller to C64.
I've never seen any disk like that. About a year later when I finally
access to the Internet I used search engines to find something about
harddisk to an 8-bit computer. There were many projects, and I slowly
to examine them one by one. [Hinweis: ein dritter CIA wird

my masterpiece (this is the hardest way for connecting PC &
piece of hardware (Disk Demon) allows you to easily transfer data
C64 and PC using ordinary 1.44Mb PC-diskette. Detail description of
and software used to accomplish that.
PC2C64 - connecting PC and C64 with parallel cable using bidirectional
port - this is easiest way for connecting: you need only parallel cable
to connect and bidirectional parallel port (with PS/2-EPP ability) on
PC. Characteristic of this project is safe (utilizes handshake lines
so-called CHECK-SUM check) and simple 8-bit (whole hardware is one
cable) transfer of data between PC and C64. Additional data about
cable get on my electronic page.
