Hallo allemaal,

I'm trying to find out how the 1541 can format a single track. I know it is
possible. The routine to format a track starts at $FB0C. The sectors are
written and then all read again to check if the writing was OK. This proces
of reading the sectors ends at $FD8B. But at that point the routine
immediatly starts to check if all tracks have been formatted. Where did I
lose track???

Thanks for any help !!!
