But you are thinking that Kryoflux wrote it properly and the Amiga with those drives wouldn't have loaded the original copy as well???

Just wondering..

Also, is there a game (or games) that would be the best "test" to see if the drive you have chose is the best choice?
I saw something earlier about GnG??
Or I have an original Dragon's Lair, which I seem to remember at the time was tough to copy...

Hi, i am confirming that the ipf image wrote correctly using my Sony Z/121 PC floppy drive but i was unable to actually load the game in my amiga using the modded sony Z/121, when i tried the original Chinon, it worked fine, and also the modded FD1231T worked fine.

Dragons Lair has worked fine in all drives i tested. Ghosts n Goblins is basically looking for a specific Amiga, 1 meg with Fast ram at C000000 otherwise it will not load.

You have to be careful when assessing whether a game ipf is actually working or not because there are a lot of earlier releases that are looking for a specific configuration Amiga. The best Amigas to try are the A500 with 512K fast ram and a A600 with dual kickstart (for non AGA) Also some games expect either NTSC or Pal or will simply fail to load (Battle Squadrion for example)
