Okay... So changing the -03 ROM to an -05 ROM seems to have solved the issues I was having with the drive communicating with other drives. Since then, I've noticed a couple other "anomolies". First, when using the drive to copy entire disks with programs like Maverick or Fast Hack 'Em, it seems to work just fine. But when saving files using SAVE"FILE",9 I get errors. I noticed this when I was using the drive on my BBS as the upload drive, files uploaded weren't saving correctly, the drive light started flashing in the middle of the upload, and the resulting file on the directory was showing 0 block and *PRG for the file type. I changed the drive to be a download-only drive, and I've had no problems with it. So it seems to read just fine, but has issues writing files, but not entire disks. Does this make sense? Also... When I format disks with this drive, the usual "head knock" sounds "weak" to me. Instead of the "bang bang bang" that I'm used to, it's a real weak "tappity tappity tappity". Could both of these things be related? Could it just be a dying drive mechanism? Or could this be another problem? -Andrew __________________________________________________ Fale com seus amigos de graça com o novo Yahoo!
