Come to think of it, I do have a set of disks that may be considered QD. It's from a DEC Professional 350 computer. DEC RX50 I believe is the model number. It holds something like a meg or something like that. That may be a QD disk because I know they don't work very well in some drives, like the 1541 for example.
