Through my conversations, I don't know of of anyone who has
successfully purchased anything from the old CMD catalog. What's
he doing? I've been waiting for a JiffyDOS ROM since March 15th.
I usually stay out of this recurring conversation, but this time I'll
jump in to at least say that he has delivered product since taking
over the CMD product line.
I ordered a CMD FD-2000 and JiffyDOS 64 + 1571 +1541 set from CMD
about a day before their cut-off for orders. They assured me that
they themselves would be filling the orders, and that the shell for my
FD-2000 was sitting right there.
They immediately shipped my JiffyDOS set, but not my FD-2000 drive.
Several months went by, and I hadn't received anything. One day my
wife received a call from Maurice saying that he needed our address
and that the drive was ready. Within a month or so my new FD-2000
A few months after that, I ordered a replacement set of GEOS 128 v2.0
floppy disks, a replacement 6526 chip, geoMakeBoot, and a few other
small items. A month or so later, they arrived.
After that, I went ahead and ordered Wheels 128, a replacement
inductor coil (looks similar to a resistor) to replace one that had
been damaged on one of my 64c systems, and a CMD hard drive (1 gig).
That order probably arrived in about 6 or 7 months. From what I hear,
many of you got to see my hard drive at some of the Commodore shows
that he went to right before shipping it off to me.
In November or December of 2002, I ordered a SuperCPU 128 w/ 16 MB of
RAM. I still have not received that yet, but am confident that it
will arrive. Since placing that order, I have continued to add to
As time went on and other things occurred to me, I have added to that
order: a CMD Parallel cable to go from my RAMLink to my Hard Drive
(with those hard to find 14-pin DIN plugs), a second Turbo 232
cartridge, a few power switches (OEM replacements), Big Blue Reader
(he had a few with German manuals that I wanted to get), and several
other misc. items. Most recently, I have added the new CMD Utilities
disk to the order.
Obviously, I have been waiting for a while for the last order I
described, but I am confident that it will arrive. Yes, I am getting
anxious to put my new SuperCPU to use (I have many plans for it). But
I am sure it will arrive in time. Hopefully it will be in the near
Anyway, the main purpose behind my post here is to show that he has
delivered product to myself (and even others that I have spoken with).
Everything that I have received from him has arrived in good working
order, and I am still using all of it today. When my current order
arrives, I'll definitely have enough to keep me busy for a while ;-)
Hope this helps to encourage others out there, who like myself, are
currently waiting for items on order.
