Thanks for the link to the manual.  After reading it I see something very odd compared to other model 3.5" disk drive.  Normally, the density line selects between 720K and 1.44MB density modes.  These drives can only switch to true low density (720K) if you are using a low density floppy drive (ignoring the density select line) and the density line switches between 1.66MB and 2.0MB modes.    That's definitely a problem if you are trying to read or write a low density format using a high density disk!

Sorry if I'm a little confused here. Do you mean to say that it's only possible, for example, preserving a 720K disk to a new disk is only possible if the new disk is also 720K? Or am I misunderstanding something here?

Would you still recommend it though, as you do in the original post in this thread? And is this an issue with the SFD-321J or is that a more versatile disk drive?
