Ahhh, memories of PCs stepping the floppy head at 30msec or some other
similarly brain dead rate instead of what the drives were capable of.
Talk about buzz saw! :)

> It is from a PC.

Is it a 1.2M or 360K disk?

You can read either in a 1.2M drive but you can't read a 1.2M disk in
a 360K drive. If it's a 360K disk try not to write it in a 1.2M drive
if you care about ever reading it in a 360K drive again.
