hmmm.. Today I tried with 2 more drives.. So in total I used 3 drives. these are : newtronics d509v2, canon 5501, and a panasonic model (of which I can't tell the type right now, as it's inside my pc ;) but I noticed it's te same model as used to describe how to modify the drive to be able to read backsides, so I WAS hopeful about that one).. The more I try the more I really get the feeling some tracks are not written at all.. All of these drives are OLD but working fine, they come from 486 machines. (the panasonic came from an old c= 486 ;) Also I tried putting the card in different pci-slots, and attaching the drives to the 2 different positions on the cable (A: or B:).. Nothing really helped, but I can transfer disks with small files now, as long as I have a file written multiple times on a disk, there always seems to be one that works.

But transferring > stuff back to 5.25 is not. i actually have the same problems, and already contacted jens. he told me that not every 'new' 5 1/4 disk drive is working because of it´s higher precision. i am trying now with 3 different drives but none is working. maybe anyone with a working setup can tell me which devvice i should use. greetings nils andreas ----- End forwarded message ----- Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
