Faster IEEE routines

Hallo allemaal,

Because I have problems with the ZoomFloppy, I decided to create my 
own tool to create images of a floppy by connecting the drive 
directly to a PC.

I'm using the original commands to access the drive and so far it is 
looking good. But it takes about 15 minutes to create a D82 image. 
That would mean about 2.5 minutes for every 160 KB = a 1541 floppy. 
And that is not so fast IMHO.

So my first question is: are there any numbers available how long it 
takes a ZoomFloppy to create an image of the various IEEE drives?

My second question: I was wondering on forehand if there are faster 
methods available to retrieve data from an IEEE floppy so I won't 
need to invent the wheel twice?

Thank you for any input!

Kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet, Ruud Baltissen
