The Applesauce works best if the
BX jumper is in place. This allows the controller to set the disk speed (300 rpm/360 rpm), which is crucial for writing and formatting double density disks correctly.
BX does not usually come with a jumper.
By default, the JU-475-4 has the
DC jumper set, but Applesauce may prefer having the
RDY jumper set instead. (It still works fine with the
DC jumper set, but may be faster with
RDY.) This is the preferred configuration in the Alpha Microsystems manual linked below.
