Hi all,
I have loads of Commodore 64 stuff and also lots of progs and things, most in basic, that I did from years ago.

I would like to transfer them all to my PC and then get rid of all my ZZaps and C64 mags and Your commodore mags and loads of other stuff to a good home.

There are freeze frame and programmers Ref guides, Action replay and other stuff and I just need the space.
Anyone interested after i have my progs saved is welcome to a list.
Free to good home but needs collecting. Wigan Area.

I have a cable to go between PC and 1541 drive but havent a clue what to do after that.
Can anyone help please.
Cheers
Cliff

I would be interested in the 64 mags , as they may be better condition copies of the mags already scanned :-)

Also any old tapes/disks etc for the gamebox page might be usefull, will obviously pay postage and throw in a dvd for you efforts :D

The software you need to transfer disks is called star commander, you can get it from here. I think you need to run it from DOS not windows, so you might need to make a boot disk, although windows 95/98 lets you reboot into dos mode.
hook up the drive to your printer port and run sc.exe. The panel on the left shows you pc's hard drive, the one on the right should show the 1541.
I dont know if the software is mouse driven, as i dont have a mouse driver for dos, but you can navigate with the F keys, arrow keys and tab key. As for copying from the floppy to the pc, I don't know if it will create a d64 file from the disk, I never needed to try (all my games are on tape), but it does work the other way round, so I expect it would work.

Hope thats enough to get you started.

CBM4WIN i would say is the best free 1541 image transferal software with a user-friendly easy to use Windows Graphical User Interface.

the GUI can be downloaded seperately from here
