Hi, As far as I remember about flippy disks, main concern was about index hole what does not exists when you reverse the disk - Some "modern" floppy disk drives accomodates while some won't. If you can't read the "flipped" disk, you have to read bottom side "reversely" by software. For my own usage, I had been fortunate to find in my stock a "normal" 360K PC-XT drive what accept to perform correctly with a "reversed" floppy on the catweaseal (don't remember make & model) ==> Correct me if I'm wrong with my explaination Tous vos emails en 1 clic avec l'application SFR Mail sur iPhone et Android - En savoir plus. ======================================== Message du : 20/09/2011 08:39 De : "Uffe Jakobsen " <firstname.lastname@example.org> A : email@example.com Copie à : Sujet : Re: usb disk controller to read c64 disks.
