Do you mean Single and Double density, I think Single and double sided 
is determined by the number of heads in the drive :)

Yeah I know some disks where only cetified single sided, but I always 
figured it was the old test it at the max spec, then the next down etc, 
until it either failed completely or passed and then sell it at that 
spec :) in other words all disks where made as DS, if they tested ok as 
SS but not DS, they got sold as SS :)

I'll stop waffling now......
