Those should, but he has them labeled wrong. They double sided, double density, not low density.

If you need "new" 5.25 floppies for your 8 bit machines, www.commodore4ever.net usually has some of those in stock. I have maybe a hundred 3.5" disks that are blank that I bought 15 years ago. I find about 1 in 5 are actually bad... Bummer.

That was pretty common, even back in the day some places called them Low-Density to differentiate them from High-Density. They are all the same DS/DD disks.

As long is it does not say High-Density it will be fine.

I've bought disks from http://www.athana.com. The man I spoke with last time mentioned they'd had a supply contract with Commodore back in the day.
