    Hi there,

    I have available now my BackBit cartridge for Commodore 64 & 128. It's a multi-function cartridge that operates with a Micro-SD card.

    For more details, check out http://backbit.io

    For the C64, C128 (in 40-column mode), and VIC-20, the BackBit cartridge is still for sale at

    and how to use the BackBit at

    The big selling point of the cartridge is its compatibility with various disk, tape, and cartridge images, like D64, D81, CRT, PRG, P00, .20, .40, .60, .a0, and more. Just drop the image(s) onto a microSD card and pop the card into the
    BackBit. You see
    the file(s) on a menu, you select the one you want, and it loads and runs. No Commodore calisthenics to get the computer to recognize the image type.

    As mentioned above, the BackBit cartridge works with the VIC-20 with a special adapter that fits the BackBit into the adapter. Evie has a video that explains
    it at
