Thanks for continuing you work on this, clenched! I really thought you'd abandoned it!

I've spent most of this afternoon and evening tweaking the head alignment on a PC floppy drive atached to my Catweasel in an effort to read the remaining bad sectors properly. I have two of them in the bag and some better data for one of the blocks in Cylinder 1, all of which are included in the new WIPC disk image. Also, I can now confirm that your 'two light pixels' fix actually repaired that sector too!

The two sectors fixed today follow the Level 15 fix introduced in WIP8 with no bad sectors between, so let's hope the Level 31 problem is fixed in this version.

I think I'm going to need another drive to tweak to get the last two sectors fixed - they're proving very difficult. The problem is finding one with the motor easily accessible, but I do have one in mind...
