Summary 07705: guab [gaub3], tenup [tenup]: File save error
Description Give us a Break and Ten Up show 'File save error' at start (see "MAME 0.222 Give us a Break - Ten Up.png" snapshots).

MAME 0.222:
* Improved HLD behavior, always activating output at start of type II & III commands (machine\wd_fdc.cpp) [AJR].
* Improved HLD/HLT handling, fixed FD1771 timings and enable spinup_on_interrupt. Do not delay SEEK with no Verify flag. Improved write protection. Set BUSY during initial restore to make it correctly interruptable. Accept new commands while in busy state, workaround for spurious recursive calls if HLD used for drive motor control, don't change track and data registers during reset (machine\wd_fdc.cpp) [MetalliC].
* READ/WRITE macros removal [Osso].

Likely issue here as only noticed used device which saw changes on the day of breakage for me (June 2, 2020):
wd_fdc.cpp honor write protection (nw)
