I assume that you mean H17 hard sector disks. It was a long time ago, but I
seem to remember some software (drivers) for CP/M to have the H37 read an
H17 disk. It would seem possible to design some software to ignore the extra
pulses generated by the sector holes in a hard sector disk. If not software,
then some simple hardware should be able to do it. I don't know if anyone
has done it. If not, it might be a challenge for me to try - IF I find time
to do it!

Regarding Media Master, I have not been able to make it work on my computers
- it last worked on an original 386 machine. Are you running it on a Pentium
machine? If so, what OS are you using?
