Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you elaborate a bit more about what your talking about?

—————————————————–
If you are talking about the difference between hi-capacity and lo-capacity 3 1/2 inch floppy disks then the answer is there is a PHYSICAL limitaion on the older disks of 700K.

You can poke a hole in it, but it will gain you nothing. (It seems to me there even was a device to do this… but I am getting old and my memory isn’t what it once was.)

    Yes, you can notch a 5.25" floppy in order to be able to flip it and use the other side... but seriously, why are you using floppies?? :) Flash media is cheap, easy to use, resilient, and has far more capacity than a floppy. Heck, I can't find any piece of flash media (USB stick, SD card, etc.) smaller than 256MB anymore, more than twice as large as an LS120 or Zip 100 disk.
