No, it's a farked-up GCR format, IIRC. Commodore had multiple CP/M GCR
formats, the C64's v2.2 1541 type and the C128's types. 1571 drives can
read all of these and many CP/M MFM formats besides, which makes it
essential for a C128 if you want to use CP/M Plus on it. I personally
think that C128 CP/M+ 3.0 is the best version of CP/M out there.
