    I haven't--I'm just trying to alert folks who think they may be able to read other manufacturer's QIC tapes may be unpleasantly surprised. How well do you do on Cipher 525 (DC600A) tapes?

    Early QIC stuff was all over the map WRT recording formats and techniques. Unless you have the make/model of QIC36 drive that created these tapes, be prepared for disappointment. (e.g. try reading...

    Well, you can get the 5.25" 1.2M drive to read in HD mode by calling it a 1.44M drive--and you can probably write, but not format that 1.2M in HD mode.

    "2 row 6 position 0.156 spacing card edge connector"

    Here's what they look like

    IMD doesn't give a pig's patoot about the BIOS. It doesn't use it--direct hardware access.

    It's only a box. I've built drive enclosures out of cedar, acrylic and metal. Haven't done one out of brass yet, but I've got the raw materials.

    Looks like the original one that I'm still using in a system. You probably won't be disappointed. For the time, CerDIP packaging was superior to plastic.

    I think that the explanation is at least plausible and initially has nothing to do with LOADALL, but rather how segment register accesses differed in real and protected mode.

    There should be a boatload of information on the Epson.

    But I've replaced 8086 CPUs in several systems with NEC V30s, including a GridCase and an AT&T PC6300. No problems at all.
