Everybody else uses that to mean Double sided single density!
Except for Superbrain, where it stood for "SUPER density", since they had
already used up "quad density" to refer to DSDD.

The TM100-2 is DSDD (Double Sided Double Density)
The TM100-4 is DSDD 96 TPI, (or "quad density", if you like that MARKETING
(The TM100-4M is DSDD 100TPI! , for substitution of Micropolis type II)

Do you mean switching to 80 track per side operation?

Cromemco people wanted Unix.
