I tried unsuccessfully to also use 1.2 drives but again I ran into the same RPM issue that I did when interfacing 8inch drives to the coco
Interestingly I did successfully get the 8inch drives to work with the coco by slowing the drives down to 300rpm

The HX can use 3.5" 720k and 5.25" 360k drives with a modified cable
on the internal connector.

>Also note that the 80 track 720k 5 1/4 drives will also work in both the coco and Tandy 1000 ; but the large 1.2meg 5 1/4 drives will not work in either system since they spin at 360 rpm and not 300 like the others.
