>A RQDX3 is incapable of formatting RX50 floppies, but it is capable


        Excuse me, but this does not make sense to me. I have an RX50 and RQDX3 in
my MicroVAX II, and it is perfectly happy formatting RX50 floppies. How do
you think I got that wonderful tape copying program onto the hard drive? ;-)

        For my part, Tim, I'd be very disappointed if you unsubscribed from the
list. I value your insights very much.
