Raspberry Pi as a disk drive for a Commodore 64 @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Here’s a great alternative to floppy disks for C64 enthusiasts via FozzTexx:
A video which shows the software I wrote for the Raspbery Pi to let it act as a disk drive for a Commodore 64. I’m able to get directory listings and load software from the Pi right onto the 64. There’s only some level shifters being used, the Pi is doing the IEC protocol directly. No arduinos or AVR or PIC microcontrollers are used.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
