Pi1541 (Raspberry Pi 3B Commodore 1541 Disk Drive Emulator)

Pi1541 is a real-time, cycle exact, Commodore 1541 disk drive emulator that can run on a Raspberry Pi 3B (or 3B+). The software is free and I have endeavored to make the hardware as simple and inexpensive as possible.

Pi1541 provides you with an SD card solution for using D64, G64, NIB and NBZ Commodore disk images on real Commodore 8 bit computers such as:

  • Commodore 64
  • Commodore 128
  • Commodore Vic20
  • Commodore 16
  • Commodore Plus4

The images could irritate your sensitivity. :-P

Photo Gallery update of my Retro Collection / Retro Trash.

Many things in the photos are not visible because are in hidden places or deliberately hidden.

I seem to have accumulated a lot of things in these long years and this is a good time to meditate what to do and what not to do, absolutely do not sell anything or donating, but also not continue to accumulate, in fact from a few months i’m moving just on repairs and modding and i must say that i feel much better.
