I tried it in my 16500B and it did NOT work. It would not boot the
16500A software - nor load the games.

It does "see" the files properly, but states they are not compatible.

I even tried substituting the 16500A system with the 16500B system on
the floppy diskette - and then the system would boot from the floppy -
but again, states that the games are not compatible.

Anyone else have any luck with the games on a 16500B/C?
