This could be unit specific, I don't know. In fact, I had a similar
problem writing 720K media written on a 1.2M drive, so I added a
720K FD. This PC (a V20 XT with 1x3,5" 720 MB, 1x3",1x5,25" 720 MB
and 1x5,25" 1.2MB) is still in use for media conversation - I added
the 3" for Schneider/Amstrad CP/M disks.


Ich denke, also bin ich, also gut
