Powerful Software - Innovative Hardware!
The Burst Nibbler system is probably the most powerful disk copier available for the Commodore computer.
It gains its power by using parallel data transfer. With standard nibblers the data is read from the disk and decoded into a standard format before being transferred to the host computer by the serial bus. This is all well until it comes across some non-standard data on the disk. Because it canít recognize the code it is unable to decode into the form needed for serial transfer. With parallel transfer the data is read from the disk and transferred directly to the host computer without the need to decode it. This is achieved because the Burst Nibbler System is actually hardware and software package. The hardware consists of a parallel cable that plugs into the computers user port. The other end of the cable plugs into the Via chip socket inside your disk drive. The software is a powerful Nibbler control program with various parameter settings to maximize results.
How much power do you want? How about:
> Transfers raw GCR Code via cable!
> Fitted in minutes usually no soldering!
> Only package to copy up to 41 tracks!
> Will copy a whole disk in under 2 mins!
> Full and half tracks copied - no problem!
> Make a perfect copy every time!
Fitting involves lifting the 6522 Via chip inside the drive, inserting it into the socket on the cable and plugging the whole assembly back into the socket, the other end just plugs into the user port and has a through connector for your other hardware.
