6128 to 512kb expansion cable
« on: 15:11, 23 February 19 »
Hi all.


I HAVE used the search feature, however I can't find an answer (I struggle to read how the way the search returns results) so wondering if someone can help.


Is there a cable I can buy/make/whatever that goes from my 6128 (or 464/664 for that matter) to the 512kb 50pin socket? Or do I need an M4 mother?


I'm VERY likely (read, will be) getting the M4 shortly, but was wondering if there are cables available.


When I go looking I see the Schneider versions (which appear to be very old printer port connections on old printers?) but not one for the UK version.


Anyone got any for sale? Or point me in the right direction?


Cheers

If you only require a ribbon cable, you should found that for around 5/8€ + shipping.

If only you had said where from.


And what it would be called.


I might not have paid the £14 that I did then.


Oh well. It's only money.
