Was wondering if 3.5" HD floppy drives can be jumpered/used in
a system that only supports 720K, using them as 720K only
I only own one 720K floppy drive (wouldn't mind a few more).
If that is possible, and only possible with some drives, anyone know
if it is possible with any of the following:
Sony MP-F17W-09 SMM
Also, anyone know if there if it is possible to slow the spindle speed
so that 1.44M can be done on machines that only have DD data rate ?
(and if so, any of the above drives capable of being slowed ?) Would
that even work ?
