Sure, I suppose. However, Ive had entire sessions where the drive never homes to track zero. :( Doesnt the DOS store the current track in a certain memory location? I guess that wouldnt help during custom disk read routines, but a fair number of fast loaders use the DOS to read sectors anyway. It shouldnt be impossible to latch any data written to that location... -david On Sat, 6 Sep 2003, Ethan Dicks wrote: > > > > I dont know, however, what to do when the drive doesnt need to slam > > the stop after initial power-up. > > Blank the display until the drive homes to track zero? > > -ethan > > -- > Visit "The Seventh Continent" > http://penguincentral.com/penguincentral.html > > > Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list > Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
