Well, I've usually had no trouble copying files back and forth
PC<>CDOS using Uniform with various standard PC controllers
(WD, Compaq, no-name).

Of course I can't format track 0 side 0 on the PC (although the
Compaticard might solve that problem) but if it's initially formatted
in CDOS, no problems. If you subsequently ask Uniform to format the
disk it skips track 0 side 0 and just formats the DS tracks.
