Re: MZ-80b FI/O to HxC Cable

Good news! Card arrived. Thank you. It worked right away (Yay) and loaded CP/M. However after a while it gives a lot of read errors.

Re: MZ-80b FI/O to HxC Cable

I am ready to buy a board and components. Just let me know price and when they are ready. Alternately if you want to sell a completed board that works too. HxC is arriving today so I will see if it works with the 80-FIO card.
