Just upgraded my new-ish CoCo2 to 64kb of RAM. to load disk images, do I just need to upgrade the BASIC EEPROM to anything Extended BASIC?

I don't readily see the EEPROM chips on cloud9 as others  have suggested.


Should I just buy a CoCo3 or a newer revision CoCo2 instead?




Some questions before that, my understanding is that I need to burn the extbas11.rom attached to the 24pin socket in the uploaded images?

Yes you just need to pop in a extended basic rom or eeprom in that socket and you are good to go.


I have some 28 to 24 pin adapters and roms if you need ...


If you ever yave a chance to get a coco3 at a fair price do so !  It's a much more capable machine although backwards capable with coco2
