All 360KB drives (i.e. DD drives) are 300 RPM ones. The 1541 on the other hand uses 360RPM (like 5.25" HD drives). I first tried a whole bunch of old 360KB DD drives until I noticed they were 300RPM ones. After getting a 360RPM 5.25" HD drive, I can read 1541 disks without a problem. CATINFO will say that the drivespeed is unknown until you've insterted a 5.25" disk and tried to read it, atleast that's the way it behaves here.
