What disk format are you trying to create? Nearly all PC floppy
controllers (and probably other controllers, too) can't handle more than
32 sectors/track. I've found one that could do more (up to about 50) but I
don't remember the type right now (maybe a DP8473). Other things that
could cause problems are the GAP sizes which can't be made too small. I
tried it when I wanted to create 52 sec/trk MFM disks, although 26 sec/trk
FM works fine.
