Well, did anyone actually succeed in making it work? And what kind of drive DID you use? I'm asking, bcoz it's not easy to get hold of 5.25 drives, and I don't want to spend too much time looking for a DD drive (which maybe are even impossible to find anymore)... ALSO, the panasonic drive I used is exactly the same as they used in the tutorial about how to modify the drive the read the backside of c= disks, so this drive should work! the authors themselves used a HD drive!

Some will detect and drop the short data pulses (since they "know", that they should receive <250kbps streams). L.
