The directory is sent in this mode just like any SEQ/PRG/USR file. After all, the link in BAM block points to the first directory block and so on.. To remain (mostly) compatible, even the 1581 drive sends only one block (header block, no BAM) before the actual directory blocks. And note to the filesystem discussion: yes, REL files are just like SEQ/PRG/USR files except that there in indexing information for random access. E.g. my c1581-handler can read REL files just fine as sequential data. Another point: bit 7 in the file type means "closed", but bit 6 means "locked". Although not widely known, this is a standard bit also. -Pasi -- "As long as the trigger keeps transmitting, no *boom*." -- Robert J.
