    Do you have PVC or ABS stuff of an equal age? I suspect that it's just as fragile. Even die-cast zamac can get fragile after 100 years.

    A1 format has been working with 22Disk since 1987. It works today with 22Disk 1.45.

    If it's an 8", it will be FM, HIGH.

    Have you tried formatting an A1 disk and putting some files on it and then seeing if you can read it back?

    Also, how do you know that the disk you're trying...

    Both my 5170-clone cases have the lower part of the drive bezel cut out so I could fit 3 floppy drives. It works. Plugged the side holes in the bezel with bondo and repainted.

    So the Ampex PYXS27 is the same as a Rodime RO-204? I did not know that.

    I've still got a system with a working Rodime 40MB MFM drive, so I probably should be grateful.

    That looks more like it, but did the 5170 use the smaller head ones for the slots like the 5150? I can't recall. These look to be 1/4" heads, while the 5150 slot uses something like 3/16" heads.
