The answer is a qualified yes.
 
It turns out in TDOS it supports more than one format.  The formats are: 160k, 320k, 360k and 1.2MB 5.25" disks and then several 3.5" disk formats.  If you have your TDOS set for 360k in the B: drive, you won't be able to read it since the directory/fat (file allocation table) appears in the wrong place.
 
There is a tool called dsksz (Disk Size) that you can use to temporarily change the format that the B: drive expects to see. At least I think that's what it is called.  It should have come with your TDOS utilities.
