Go back and read what I wrote, Bill.   If single-sided media is being
used, DOS formatting will fail as there is no single-sided high-density
format available.

Of course, if double-sided media is used, DOS formatting as a 1.2MB DOS
disk should work--up to track 76.   Note that 8" drives are 77
track/cylinder, not 80, as the 5.25" drives are.

IMD can handle the issues quite readily, as its formatting facility will
do whatever you tell it to do.
