I have 2 floppy drives A(3.5") and B(5.25"). Is there a software that can check for bad sectors on B drive so I can throw away the bad ones?

Strange quesion. but i usally use Norton Disk Doctor it has better testing capabilities than Microsoft Scandisk. And they all can use any drive? And just on advice, if you find bad sectors, then FORMAT B: /U and then try again after full format. Sometimes it fixes the problem.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.
