[Coco] 1.2Mb floppy drives

Funny enough, last week I was going through storage and found about a dozen 3.5" diskette boxes, unopened. They were all for my old synthesizer keyboard, which I sold years ago. I think all these disks were 720K, too, because, much like retro computing, the music industry stayed in the dark ages as well (the mid-90s synth I had still used a BELT-DRIVEN floppy drive! Even CoCo got past that in the 80s!).
