The discussion was regarding 5.25" double density 80 track floppy drives
(which are not really "quad density" although as I recall manufacturers
were referring to them that way because they had double the capacity of
double density... but they did it with a narrower track and twice as
many tracks).

720K 5.25" floppies on 360K media.
