But I thought that third digit in the model number would refer to the capacity in megabytes. Converting the figures given by you from real megabytes (2^10 bytes) to disk manufacturers' fake megabytes (10^6 bytes) does not yield that much capacity, only 5.2*10^6 bytes and 7.7*10^6 bytes, respectively. I'm not saying that you are wrong; I was just surprised that also the larger model was that small. But it would be impossible to use greater disks than 16 megabytes using Commodore's format anyway (actually 64k less, since tracks are numbered from 1). Does anyone know what is the size limit of REL files in the "better" version (the one that uses two layers of abstraction, I think it's called "super side sectors")? Is the same version used both in the 1581 and in the old drives (8050 and the like)?
