RE: Arduino IL Drive Sim read good write bad
there was indeed an important change to the SD card library. First, FILE_WRITE had the same meaning as O_RDWR. It was O_READ and O_WRITE (and O_CREAT, which does not matter because the IL-Drive simulator never want to create a file).

As mentioned in the second link above, O_APPEND means:
/ ** The file offset shall be the end of the file prior to each write. */

At the end of the year 2017, FILE_WRITE was redefined:
This means that the SD card library now jumps to the end of the file with every write command if the file was opened with the parameter FILE_WRITE. However, the IL-Drive simulator must be able to change the data within the existing file because the directory entries are stored at the beginning of the LIF file. If you want to program a Arduino Mega 2560 for the IL-Drive simulator with the current Arduino IDE, you have to replace FILE_WRITE in the file ildrive.cpp with O_RDWR at two places.

In this entry also someone describes his surprise about the changed behavior of the SD card library:
