I also experienced that, and my guess is that this behaviour causes problems with the copy program I tried. > the routine only works on an 8250 - i'm not sure if it'l work on 1571 - > i'll try it next time i'm working on c128 . It won't work and it isn't needed at all. The 1571 already has a method to detect single sided disks without producing errors and there are commands to format a single sided disk as well. But the program should also work on an SFD1001, since it is like a 8250 that reports a drive not ready error on drive 1 all the time. > i think the original flipper question was before i got online > the flipper routine was actually put onto the disk i sent by mistake which > just goes to show that the 8096 is smarter than everyone thinks !` Mistake or not, thanks for that program! I really asked for something like that before but nobody could help. Nicolas - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
