I'm pretty sure it's just a ROM limitation, as the SE/30 uses the exact
same floppy drive as the later IIci and others which can't read or write
the older GCR-type disks. I forget now the list of which Macs can and
cannot do this, but ISTR the SE/30 was very close to being the last, if
not itself the last.

I personally used my SE/30 to generate the required GS/OS disks from
Apple's Disk Copy images, so it does work.
