Mystery lead?

Hi, can anyone tell me what this lead is for? The other end is the BT style plug that plugs into sockets on back of the QL - the lead is only about 6 inches long - it came with a used QL I bought.

Re: External QL microdrive?

That's actually quite interesting and informative - I really just wanted to get a set up using the microdrive expansion slot to test internal mdv units to see if they were faulty or not without having to fit hem in the QL case. I have previously physically swapped mdv1 with mdv2 and both worked befo...

Backplane/motherboard extension board

Hi there, was just wondering if someone has got spare back plane or one that they no longer need? What I am really after I suppose is an extension board that extends the motherboard expansion socket up to the end of the QL casing so that I don't have to fiddle and jiggle my Gold card in order to loc...
