It uses five bits for every nybble in such a way that there's always at least one 1 and one 0 in each, IIRC. FAT is the MS-DOS file system with the 8+3 filename convention etc. The 1581 uses MFM to encode the data on the physical media, but since it uses a different directory and file structure the standard MS-DOS commands such as DIR and COPY can't interpret the information stored on the disk. -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . . + + Per Olofsson o-o . . . o + MagerValp@Goth.Org - + + . http://www.cling.gu.se/~cl3polof/ - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
