It's disk change--but the PC5 should be blind to it.  Another 
possibility is that the PC5 might require a READY\ signal, which was 
supplied on the same pin.  I'm just not familiar with the ins and 
outs of the PC5.  Regardless, there's no difference between recording 
on 720K and a 5.25".360K.   I'd inspect jumpers first, then see if 
pin 34 on the cable goes anywhere. 

Cheers,
Chuck
