I assume that moving the head clears the /CHNG flag and re-inserting the disk sets it again? What about the opposite situation? When we have the disk in the drive and it is ejected - is /CHNG set in this case too? > You mean other than faster mechanical wear of both the disk and the > drive, extra noise and increased power consumption?

So I would be much happier without the PIC. Regards, Michau Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-04-22 21:00:35
