I also remember, that when doing the dirty trick of trying reading tracks beyond 35 and then cycling the power, then sometimes the drive would refuse to read any disks anymore. Only "UI" (or was it (UJ) would make the drive to bump and return to normal. This also implies it tries to read the current location, but as it is beyond the formatted tracks, it gets nothing and decides there is no disk in drive.
