Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

I am testing some specific functions and Q68/SMSQE commands. I have several drives configured (WIN1_, WIN2_, ... FAT1_, QUB1_).

Re: QL-SD news

Good news!! Congratulations Marcel.

Please put me on the list for one (with dual-card adapter version it would be fine).

I have an original QL-SD, so I am also interested in an update.
