Hallo Nick,

Error, should have been: 'a 1541 disk with ....'.
Infosector: 18 0, layout like 1541 except BAM, disk code: 2R
Directory: 18 1 and further including other tracks, layout like 1541
BAM: 18 224..255, every bit represents a sector. No 'sectors free' number
like the 1541 has, that is calculated by the PC the moment it is needed.

I have asked CMD in 1999 and they didn't give me permission to use the
format as they considered it as a threat: buying their product versus
installing a piece of free software on a obselete PC.
