After loading first file, the reader goes "offline"

After booting up, loading either a file or the dir works fine. But the 2nd time I try to access the card e.g. via LOAD "$",8 or LOAD "<filename>",8 it just gives me "DEVICE NOT PRESENT ERROR".

I have to reboot both DTV+IEC in order to access the card again.

Anyone else who has this problem ?

BTW: Loading a file the first time works very well, so I cannot understand what this problem is.

BTW: I am using 5V+GND from a USB port on my computer and the 1541-iii is connected to this aswell (same as DTV). I do not think this is the problem, though. Just thought i´d mention it.

The device not present error is related to ATN-signal instability. Use a pull-up (like 5-10k) or try to resolder the wires. I think resoldering did the trick for you Espen, as yours now works?
