Disk Density

I recently purchased a disk drive. The instructions specify that you should use single-density disks. However, I have some double-density disks which I would like to be able to use. Will it cause any problems?

James P. Simson

Double-density disks will not cause any problem. Using a product of higher quality than specified never hurts. However, using single-density disks on a drive that specifies double-density could cause difficulties.
