Hi everyone, Got my hands on a C64 mini recently and am loving it! Been attempting for a week now to get THEC64-drive8.d64 files to work off a USB stick all to no avail. Just keep getting "READONLY" message in BASIC when I type LOAD"$",8 then LIST. It's like it's not recognizing the USB sticks at all... tried 6 different types of sticks and different brands (including new ones out of the box). Just had a thought today though. I'm wondering if the USB Power Adapter I'm using isn't powerful enough (ie: not supplying enough Amps/Volts) to run both the C64 Mini and "power" the USB Stick.. is that such a thing? The C64 Mini works great with the games built in, so no issue there. Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.
synchromesh: Anyone know why thec64.com is down ?

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
