• c128d floppy seek

    From Daniel Path@2:371/52 to All on Saturday, October 23, 2021 16:56:40
    Hello All.

    when i boot up my c128 in 128 mode the floppy seeks and tries to boot, but it fails (because the drive is empty) and the flash starts to blink and do not stop blinking. is it the normal behaviour? i think the blink should stop. anyways the drive seems to work fine.

    thanks,

    That is normal. At least for a 1541 (hooked up to a C64). Suppose it's
    the same for a C128.
