So after several inquiries on how the CKeeper worked, I have made a short demo of some of its features. After sitting around for 25 years I was amazed that, except for the batteries, it still worked flawlessly!
Here is the zipped demo: http://www.applefritter.com/files/ckeeper%20demo.MOV_.zip.
And here is a list of the CKeeper Extended Commands: http://www.applefritter.com/content/ckeeper-commands.
And a (25 year old) color screen dump to the Imagewriter: http://www.applefritter.com/content/ckeeper-screen-dump1.
Here is the CKeeper description from the last Ingenuity brochure: http://www.applefritter.com/content/ckeeper-brochure.
Since this is a continuation of the CDrive thread, for completeness:

AWESOME!! Thanks for the video!
Wow, that's cool! I'd love to see some of these built. That's some really impressive functionality.
Thanks for sharing.
Are you at all interested in bringing the CDrive and CKeeper back to the Apple IIc community? Whether you did it yourself, crowdfunded it (via Kickstarter) or partnered with UltimateApple2 -- you could sell a bunch of these. It wouldn't make you rich, but I bet a bunch of people would love to purchase them.
A2Central.com is prepared to help and support whatever it takes to make this a reality!
What Sean says! :)
Just posted some new information on the Mac version of the CKeeper.
Starting a new thread for the MacSaver: http://www.applefritter.com/content/macsaver-mac-memory-saver-and-guardcard
The project is back?
I can still put money and parts toward it if needed.
In discussion now with a VERY CAPABLE partner Who knows? A modern version of the CKeeper might just be around the corner.
My wish still may come true!
