The capacity of the Notetaker floppy disk has been advertised as 340,000 bytes. That quantity assumed double-density, dual sided-disks, and a particular format. rn1is memo summarizes some possibilities for formatting single-sided disks.

Standard IBM -style fonnats have an overhead in address marks and synch marks equivalent to 60 or more bytes per track plus 50 or more bytes per sector. rIlle WD 1791 can handle non-standard formats, but below certain unknown minimum values for the synch mark overhead, reliability will be sacrificed.

Nominal disk capacity (according to Shugart literature):

Single density: 110K Double density: 220K

File Format (128 byte sectors, IBM style):

Single density: 35 tracks * 16 sectors * 128 bytes = 71,680 [35*(60+-16*(60+ 128»= 107,380 including overhead]

Double density: 35 tracks * 32 sectors * 128 bytes = 143,360 [35*(60+ 32*(60 + 128» = 212,660 including overhead]

Dump Format (1 sector per track) [haven't attempted yet]

Single density: 35 tracks * 1 sector * 3072· bytes = 107",520' "':':' [35*(60+60+ 3072)= 111,720 including overhead]

Double. density: 35 tracks * 1 sector


6144 bytes = 215,040 [35*(60+60+6144)=219,240 including overhead]

We may h~ve to try reducing the overhead in order to fit that much on a track.

Dump fonnat can handle 50% more data' than' . file fonnat. It still is not enough for a complete vmem dump' of 256KB on one double density disk (or on two single density disks). It is almost enough if .save omits the display bit map' and resume does a user res/ore:

262J44[main mem]-38,400[bit map] = 223,744[vmem]
