IIRC, EmuTOS only shows floppy drives that physically exist (it doesn't support
TOS's "virtual floppy" concept).  So I expect that EmuTOS believes that both

I can post a summary here of how EmuTOS does drive detection, if that would be
helpful.  If there's an error in the logic, I'll certainly fix it.
