I have about 20 of these generic Staples branded 3.5 floppy disks from the early 2000s. They worked ok back when I bought them.
Lately though since getting back into retro computing, I've been experiencing tons of issues formatting, copying files, booting from them, etc regardless of the drive used. Most annoyingly I'll write an image to them 'successfully', but then have read errors when trying to use the disk.
Are there any tools out there for testing floppy disks or should I just toss the lot?
I have sealed box of Sony branded disks on order from eBay.
