I once got a "TU58i" Monitor-program in an EPROM that replaces the original
firmware of a TU58, and then should provide the ability to (re)format a TU58 or
DC100 cartridge in a normal TU58 drive. Anybody ever heard of this?

I still should have it somewhere around although I didn't use it myself, so I
have no practical experience of it. But if anyone is interested to experiment
with it, I would try to dig it out one of many boxes in my garage marked with:
"interesting things, sort out some day".
