"RX02 format uses single-density address fields even for double density. The RX02 can "reformat" standard single-density into RX02 modified MFM format just by rewriting all of the data fields.

It still can't low-level format a blank or MFM disk."

So you have to have a single-density IBM formatted disk which the RX02 can convert

Assuming DEC hardware. ISTR that if you have one of the fairly common DSD drives (ex DSD440/880) then you can in fact format the RX02 disks.
