Here is a link to the stream files:

I hope this works, I haven't used Dropbox before. This is from a backup copy that I made since I know it is a double-sided disk (it's a BASF 2S/2D). To be honest, I always thought that double sided meant that you needed to flip it over to read/write to it.

I think you may be right about the drive head. Using the GUI, all I get are grey squares on Side 1. I am looking into options, but if this is the case, can you offer suggestions about what I can do about it. Thanks for your help.
Well, this image must be incomplete.
(At least, Head 1 is not dumped correctly.)

Yeah, the head for Side 1 must have been bad. I found a replacement drive that has been working splendidly.
