    Sure is. I had programmed some others back in the late 1990s, and they still read beautifully. Could be a dud EPROM, but as mentioned, it was freshly removed from working equipment.

    Both programmers are parallel (LPT) based, but that does give me another idea - slow down the read. Perhaps the programmers are trying to read the contents too quickly. Its not possible - I don't...
