Adventures with an Amstrad PC1512 - Floppy Drives

It is possible to plug a 3.5 inch 720k (NOT 1.44Mb) floppy drive into the machine with the relevent connectors. However, the system won't recognise the drive as being 720k unless you add to the config.sys:-


My machine has an external 3.5 inch drive which connects to the B drive and has a switch at the back which cleverly allows either the 5.25 drive or 3.5 drive to be used (but not together).
