Oh, this is actually supposed to be MS exFAT. I've never spent much
time looking at the internals of that, so I didn't recognize it. I've
never bothered since the MS format is licensed and proprietary.
See, a little documentation would go a long way.
And if this is really straight exFAT, why call it exFAT12? Or have
you taken some liberties with the format? I believe MS has claimed a
minimum size of 1MB for exFAT, so a 1.44MB floppy should not be an
issue on that basis.
