  1. Dear Sir
    I bought your previous PI1541 kit. I followed the install process (including settings for mode B) and all seemed to work fine: PI boots successfully. However when entering load"$",8 the C64 is stuck on "searching for $" DEBUG displays a "spike" with ATN and CLK at 0 (before load, clock worked well). Do you have any suggestion?

    1. I think this was resolved by trying a different memory card by email, if not please email me at sales@sharewareplus.com

    2. What SD card do you recommend? Small ones are getting harder and harder to find. What is the largest one can use? I doubt a 128gb?

    3. It is possible to still buy 8GB, smaller the better.

  2. interested in the 1541 pi case , i like to purchase -thanks

  3. Can I receive notification when the cases are available again?

  4. The post starts with "21st Dec 2021"... I always love messages from the future ;-)

    But patiently waiting for restock...

  5. Very nice design! Let me know when they are available. Thanks.

  6. Can I still get this case? Been looking for something decent, and this is it. I've tried emailing but it bounced back as not delivered :(

    1. Not sure what the issue was, but thank you for your order and the Pi1541 is on the way to Australia!

  7. Do you have an email address where I can order this case from. Your email addresses bounces back.

    1. The email address is sales@sharewareplus.com

  8. Purchased this from Tim last week, was a pleasure to deal with he was. He sent all the details via email for the Pi1541 and posted it to Australia once payment went through. My gosh was it worth the wait (only a week but hey, I was hanging for it).

    The case is honestly the best part of the whole Pi1541. The HAT board that came with it was neat with it's power switch at the rear, the activity lights for the memory card, the screen, all of it is top notch. I only hope that later versions of the Pi may work with this into the future given how hard a Pi3 is now-a-days with a tweaked board to suit. Love the Pi1541, so very happy with my new addition to the C64C.

  9. Bought this kit from Tim last month, and am very happy! The build quality is the best of any kit I've ever bought, the instructions are easy to follow, and Tim had it shipped to me in Australia from the UK faster than some domestic purchases!

    If you've been on the fence about building a Pi1541, do yourself a favour and get this one when Tim has stock. Getting into 8-bit machines has been so rewarding, and this has made it even easier and more fun.
