    Is what I posted above good enough for you guys?

    It's not whether it'd good enough for us since neither of us is a potential buyer. But if a buyer is looking for a working set it will matter to him or her.

    FWIW, DIR and CHKDSK are not a really good method of checking a disk's veracity as they do not go beyond the system area. I have lots of disks that can pass the DIR and CHKDSK test but are still flawed in the data area and that renders them unusable.

    I have found that a really reliable yet simple test is Norton Disk Test (DT.EXE). It's very fast and does an excellent job of turning up bad or unreadable sectors in both the system and data areas of floppy disks.

    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    And I'm not asking $40.00 for a set of disks either.
