You should play around with the BIOS settings for 5.25" drive. This
might be a problem with the drives spinning speed (300 or 360 RPM) and
the rate the controller is trying to read the DD (not HD!) data. You
should first try to access the drive using RETRIEVE.EXE and DISKINI.EXE
(JV tools). If this works, it should work from within the JV emulator
too. The DK emulator allows reading at different rates by loading a
different driver (F|VH|D*.DSK). One of them shoud work.
