Ports open at 38,400 so it flies. Ever seen an 8-bit transfer at 38.4K? Holy crap.
This is done with the magic of a Swiftlink RS232 adapter.
Punter, Multipunter, Ymodem, Xmodem xfers. Find one you like.
4GB CMD SCSI drive running off a Compact Flash card using a SCSI to CF adapter. Fast. For 8-bit.
