A few years ago I bough a A2000 just like I had when I was kid.
Then because of personal reasons I had to step aside from this but before this I installed a gotek drive as primary drive and collected a lot a floppy disks.
A few weeks ago because now I have a chance to get this working again, I noticed mostly every disks had reading issues.
I dissasembled the drive and cleaned it well with alcool (iso) and added grease etc etc I was hoping the wierd noise some floopy were doing would be gone.
And I just noticed that the drive is actually damaging the floppy I put in
When I slide open a floppy I can see a ring or 2 on the magnetic disk inside the floppy, so I checked several floppy and when I found one without it, I tested it and it got back out with the ring "engraved" after a reading error and bad noise when reading.
I am not sure what could cause this, is the reader head too low, the floppy not in position? I have the drive open but I can't see what could be wrong.
Anyone already experienced this?
I am so mad because I actually ruined at least 20 or more floppy
(Yes I have a gotek but I dont like it much...just like using an emulator...I know floppy got damaged with time, but this is not about time :/ or it is but on the drive)
