How does 1581 work then, which uses the same mech but does not "click"? Hi, The 'no-click' drives have a track 0 sensor which do not physically step the drive if the head is already on track 0. The other drives bump the head to the track 0 limiter. -Pasi Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-04-20 13:00:16
