+Lee Stewart Posted September 1, 2011 Share Posted September 1, 2011 (edited) Pardon my naiveté, but I have a question about the transfer block for the diskette level 1 formatting subprogram (11h). The docs (GPL Interface Specs for 99/4 Disk Peripheral) say the MSN of 834Ch for the DSR version should be 1 for double-sided formatting, but are a little confusing for when 2 should be used, in particular, for density. Is that any density greater than single? More generally, does anyone from experience reading this have detailed advice about exactly what diskette formats can be written with which DSR version numbers in this nybble (presuming, of course, an appropriate version of the DSR is in place)? For example, what happens if the transfer block has DSR version = 0, Density = 2 and No. of Sides = 2? ...lee Edited May 21, 2012 by Lee Stewart Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
