I have recently purchase an original copy of the program called "Free
Spirit" drive alignment for any 1541 and 1571 type drive.
I was able to fix in two evenings three previously misaligned drives with
this software by simply running the program and following the directions:
One internal 1571 (C128D drive )
One 1541 II
I was unable to fix another 1571 drive, but at least I was able to
determine that the problem was not the alignment or drive speed.
I highly recommend this program. If anyone has a bum 1541/1571 drive,
don't chuck it until you try this program first!
Does a similar program for the CBM 8050/4040, SDF 1001, etc exist?
