If you heat the cart in the oven at a temperature less than that which will
melt the case, but enough to melt the glue?
I have had considerable adventures with this combo of hardware, here is a
link that spells out the steps I took to interface my C128 (in c64 mode)
using MMC Replay and RR-Net with the second Ethernet card in a PC formatted
with WinXT. I can make a D64 image of a disk in less than 30 seconds. I
prefer the c128 because after each image, I get better performance if I
restart the C128 using the reset button (rather than have to power cycle
the c64). I have a lot of the files you need on my web site, directions
and links for the files you'll need are here:
