The way the computer reads disks is comtrolled by the disk controller.
In the KAYPRO, the disk controller is unable to read anything not written
on a KAYPRO,
so you would have to change the hardware, not the software to be able to
disk formats. The Osborne Double Density option allows one to read other
because the drive controller ROM has the instructions on how to do this..
Kaypro has an EPROM in the disk controller, you might be able to re-
program it, but It would be very difficult to do so. The easiest
way to do file transfer would be to have an Ozzie or PC hard-wired to each
and send files through the ports.
