Are you reading and writing sectors of 1.4M disks with a Coco?
If so, that concludes the debate over whether THAT hack is possible.

BTW, Dr. Marty once did a series of articles in Rainbow containing the
code for reading PC 360K disks with a Coco. I never got around to
teaching him the details of sub-directories, so I doubt that he supported

BTW2, the very first ever RS disk interface for the Coco had all chips
socketed, as well as a few other differences that make it the best one to
work from for a 500Kbps mod.
