I have a high density floppy drive on my own A1200. I can try all i want to write back a disk image of turrican II with it, it will never work.

Explanation : A floppy drive never defines what you can write. It's the floppy controller, and paula (the amiga floppy controller) maximum track length write is $3200. Since turrican II tracks are $3500 in length, paula chops $300 chuncks of data each time it tries to write the tracks on a fresh disk.

Quote:
its not variable. the controller (paula) is the same and can only write one speed. the hd drives on amiga switch to half rpm (150) when hd disk is inserted.
I have a 1.76mb HD drive and this doesn't work.

Quote:
you can write long tracks back on a hd disk in a hd floppy, but you cannot use this disk in a dd floppy afterwards.
I have tried long before you came on this board to write such games back on disks, and this doesn't work, plain and simple.

Quote:
some games will work, i remember turrican2 works written back this way.
If it was true, most of us would know it, and the trick would be available since a long time now.

But this doesn't work.
