Damn, I didn't think that in "1.2MB" mode the drive uses 80 tracks... and when they are in "360KB" mode they are using double stepping of the head.
So you're right, these HD drives have smaller heads than DD 40-tracks ones .
Will this make a big difference during floppy reading? Or is it really important during writing only?
