I have a memory that when I looked at this issue long ago, there was
some parameter, perhaps Reduced Write Current, or Write Precomp that
was *not* compatible between the TM602S and the ST506.  I also
remember that it wasn't a factor with the ST225.

Go back and check the full descriptions of the drives - back in the
day, it was more than just C/H/S issues - analog drives were funny,
and you had to get to know each model.

But to directly answer your question, no, I have not.
