Gentlemen, After an incredible amount of fussing about, rebuilding and swearing I have finally gotten the battery pack bought off Fleabay and installed by me to WORK!!!! Yes!!! it worked the Rollei 6008. I am finally happy and not going to sell the Rollei 6000 stable. It really did seem like a choice there for a while, but seems out of the question now. And I will order up another pack and rebuild the remaining pack and have 3 packs once more. Thanks for the comiseration and assistance. I will also get one off B&H as further back up. These really are great cameras save the lousy batteries. However came up with that idea should be whipped.
