Raspberry Pi acting as a Commodore 64 Disk Drive

FozzTexx shows how he built a system that allows a Raspberry Pi to act as a Commodore 64 Disk Drive. His C-64 is tricked out with an Ethernet card so he shows us how he can pull a directory listing from the Raspberry Pi drive and loads an internet browser. It works but isn’t really usable for anything modern. The drive access is very slow due to the speed limitation of the C-64 bus. The software is available for free on Github.
