    Yes, but some say that writing a 360KB disk in a 1.2MB drive might be iffy.

    Well, I won't be writing 360kb disks, just reading if I had any. I just use the 3.5s for writing.

    Including IBM.
    It is why a 360K drive was an option in the IBM 5170 (IBM AT).

    I have a few of those drives with the star that indicates 360KB.
