Maybe I could, but it makes no sense: I have a box of disks and I don't know which ones are single and which ones are double sided. I had to modify it in a way that it detects the disk type and then uses 77 or 144 tracks. > > makes a lot of noise at the end of each transfer :-( Also, this > > particular 8250 currently is a single drive, because the spindle motor > > needs service.

What makes you think so? Today I also got a SFD1001 and I also thought that it's misaligned: It can't read the disks that came with the 8250. But it formats disks just fine, and reads them back in. BUT: The 8250 also reads this disk (at least the dir). And even a freshly 8250 formatted disk won't work in the SFD.

So far it worked fine for me with the cheaper disks. I have some QD disks (they don't say QD, but 2S/2D 96tpi, which should be the same) which I got from the University trash, and they're formatted in CBM DOS 1 format (670 blocks free)!
