I have a USB SuperDrive and 120mb disks. Seems to me that there are two heads in the 
drive, one for the 1.44mb floppy, the other for the ZIP-type disk; at least it 'sounds' like
heads are being switched when the other media is being inserted.

The ls120 "superdrives" were able to get 120M onto a floppy with the same
form factor as a 1.4M disk. I've got a few of the external drives. They were
intended to connect via a parallel port. However the drive itself was an ide
drive with a parallel/ide converter board. I remove the board and connect the
drive to my coco via the ide interface from cloud-9!!
