I have a floppy drive that is consistently giving read errors (data errors, sectors not found)
Explanation: Your floppy disk drive is giving a large number of read errors, even when using different disks or different brands of disks. (If you just have a disk or two giving errors, you should be looking here).
Diagnosis: This symptom usually means that the floppy drive needs to be replaced. In some cases the problem is that the drive has become misaligned. This can be fixed, but today it is more economical to just replace the drive.
