It's absolutely impossible to get a hold of HD floppies where I live, let alone DD floppies - I take what I can.

I used hd floppies for a while, anecdotally they seemed to suffer read errors earlier than their dd brethren. As long as you have a backup of the discs its not a problem.. But then again.. With the new firmware for the gotek.. Who needs floppies anymore
