Shouldn't be the answer, that the Catweasel software (or maybe even the
hardware) was created with HD drives in mind?

All it has to do is to expect the bit timings to be faster by a factor
of 360/300. I guess they expected a HD 5.25" drive to be installed (if
at all...) rather than a "300 RPM" but more obsolete 360K DD one.

Still, since the Catweasel is able to read Amiga disks (3.5" DD) that
are also 300 RPM ones, I guess the timing (thus the drive type) of the
C= disk reading process must be simply a matter of software; if it's not
possible by simply using some command line switches then it should be
possible by hacking into the disk reader code...
