On July 2, 2006 in a reply to me on this list, you mentioned that earlier on someone had tracked down the location of the drive geometry table and patched it in order to use around 16 MB from a ST-225. However I haven't found any such ROM files floating around. http://cbm-hackers.2304266.n4.nabble.com/WTD-tandon-603s-or-602s-td4068531.html#a4068542 (The hunt for the golden drive geometry seems to have been going on since at least 1999) Also Markus Mehring once mentioned to the Secret Weapons of Commodore that in Germany there were upgraded drives meaning a 9060 could have anything from 2x5 MB to 2x16 MB capacity. I understand the SASI board accepts two drives (probably half height?) and interleaves them in directory listings. http://www.floodgap.com/retrobits/ckb/secret/hds.html Possibly all those tricks nowadays are mostly for curiosity, and even on the IEEE side there are more reliable and cost effective ways if storage capacity is what you are after.
