Full Version: Floppy Speed with HP-85
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I have an HP-82901M with two drives. Everything seems fine and I can get 100% read, write and copies between drives.

Problem is that it takes about 15 minutes to copy from one drive to the other using:

COPY ":D700" TO ":D701"

The destination floppy is already INITIALIZED. Should this take this long. It does not seem to be experiencing any retries. I mean the drive lights just alternate between drives as if everything is fine with very little head movement sound.

15 minutes to copy a less than 300K floppy???
