Yes, NO LS-120 can, to my knowledge.
My LS-120 drives canNOT read or write 32MB formatted floppies, nor format 1.44MB floppies to 32MB, and I would speculate that there are no LS-120 drives which can do it. But there are many different LS-120 drive models, with different capabilities and different drivers.
The "FD-32" technoloigy (whatever it is) is inherent to the LS-240 and NOT to the LS-120 (another old announce):
and from the mouth of the wolf:
An actual PDF for the QPS USB version:
where the feature is present
and the actual manual of the LS-240 from Winstation SCSI version:
where the feature is NOT.
The SuperDisk drive is moving forward with a higher capacity version (240Mb), while remaining backward compatible with the 120Mb, and 1.44Mb. The 240 has an added feature, the drive will allow you to format a 1.44 diskette as a 32Mb diskettes.
What's New About the SuperDisk 240?
The LS-240 drives are still read/write compatible with the original LS-120 media, and also still read and write standard 1.44MB and 720KB floppy media at their normal capacities. The LS-240 drives, however, have two big differences over their predecessors:
Support for 240MB LS-240 media.
FD32MB technology, which allows you to reformat standard 1.44MB floppy disks and store 32MB of data per disk.
If you thought that CD-R media was cheap enough to give away when you transfer data, how about floppy media? If you're like me, you probably have a lot of new or used-once floppy media that is hard to use at its normal capacity (it's just not big enough), but will work very nicely for larger data files and project files if you use the LS-240 drive's FD32 technology to reformat the media to 32MB.
