Driver file? What driver file? You mean that's been my problem?
720K drives will work fine on the original drive controller AFTER you load
the driver file. I've done it dozens of times to connect my NEC
Multi-Speed drives to the PC. The only problem is that you can't boot from
them since the driver has to be loaded for them to work. I don't *think*
the 1.44 Mb drives will work on the controller though.

My IBM XT is looking worried. It's been running fine for years with the
original IBM controller linked to 2 360K drives and 2 720K 3.5" drives.
And you're telling it it shouldn't work?
720K 3.5" drives work fine on the original IBM controller using a
suitable cable and not other mods. I believe drive A: should be a 360K
drive, but apart from that there's no real problem.
