Commodore Computers

On this page, I have collected some links to resources on Commodore (CBM) machines.

Manuals, Datasheets, disk images, and the like

Only loosely related to Commodore 8 bit machines, but interesting anyway: A history of the Amiga at



Emulators and Transfer Software


  • VICE is a versatile emulator for most machines of CBM's 8 bit line.
  • CCS64
  • Frodo
  • YAPE emulates 264 based machines (Plus/4, C16, C116).

Transfer Software

  • Star Commander is a DOS-based program for transferring CBM disk to the PC.
  • OpenCBM (formerly known as cbm4win) is "my" project for accessing CBM drives from Windows. It is a port of cbm4linux to Windows.
  • cbm4linux for accessing CBM drives from Linux
  • 1581copy lets you access your 1581 3,5" drive in a PC disk drive.
  • Markus Brenner has written some tools for manipulating CBM tapes.
  • 64HDD makes a PC act like a CBM hard disk.
  • VC1541 is an even older, similar project.
