Good point. I have not taken a PC-formatted AS/400 drive and placed it back in an AS/400. In terms of device detection (4326, 6718, etc.) that wouldn't be a problem since that's a firmware and not a format function. But I'm not positive about the 400 low-level formatting the new drive. Since it takes so darn long I would think the 400's add-to-ASP function is (re)formatting the drive but I couldn't say for sure. I suppose this could be a barrier for what Guy wants to do unless someone can verify that the drive movement can go both ways. Maybe Dr. Frankenseries can chime in.
