DE64 V4.1 is the long awaited successor of the IDE64 V3.4 build using the present-day technology.
The new IDE64 can be used with the variety of up-to-date or archaic devices witch makes IDE64 V4.1 the most versatile peripheral device for Commodore 64. It supports Hard Disks, CDROMs, DVDs, ZiP drive, LS-120, CompactFlash (CF) and more. Contrary to the successor IDE64 can serve three devices in the same time.
When used with CF, IDE64 doesn't need any additional power supply, CF has low power consumption (including IDE64 approx. 140mA). Of course the IDE64 can be used with standard ATA hard disk drives or CD/DVD ROMs together with CF or without CF option.


Just checked back wondered when this was out, need to save some money. THis is like the best mod for the Commodre 64 (mine is still working fine).

89 though but it looks worth it.

That is really cool and all, but I doubt anyone is going to pay for this.

well i broke down and bought one lol, should be made within 30days. it's a lot of money but i like stuff like this, better than spending it on booze anyway. i just need a good scart/RF adapter so i can hook up my C64 via VGA to my LCD.will post pics and a review when I get it..

haven't ordered the ethernet module because there still designing it but it still will be good...long live C64
