Abstract

An industry standard double-side, double-density flexible disk is configured to be used in a single-side, single-density flexible disk drive by the addition of index hole 1. The flexible disk is initialized to any type (single side, single density, double side, single density, or double side, double density) depending upon the disk drive to be used. This provides the versatility of using one flexible disk type on any of the commonly used flexible disk drives.
