Thanks for the jar. I've used it to replace the old one. However, I don't think that's the problem.
I've used dmode to turn on vfy on drive /i0 and when I re-run the format command and ask for physical verify, the format process begins and gets to BYTE 003F and then ends with an error 245.
I'm starting to think there is simply something wrong with my IDE card (rather than just the flash card). I have another IDE that I use with my Coco 2, and when I took my flash and formatted it using that card, the process works. Oh well...
