If you have a 5.25 floppy drive in your PC you can use a COCO
emulator to write COCO disks. It works well. I have to boot from a
Win95 boot disk because the utilities wont run under Win XP.
As for the multipak, there were different upgrades for the different
type of multipaks. If I remember correctly the hardest ones to
upgrade were the newest model. It says Tandy on it looks
more "modern" than the older multipaks. I remember this because I
have this type and remember not being happy about the whole daughter
board and wires I had to solder. :-)
Hopefully someone else here can tell you more about it.
