Slide the disk shutter open and slowly spin the disk a full revolution, check both sides for anything sticking to the surface then do as dlfrsilver says and clean the surface through the shutter hole, I don't like breaking open disks! Chances are that whatever is stuck to the disk has now gummed up your drive heads too so you need to clean those as well, it could also score the disk surface and could have damaged that so once cleaned check the surface again!

Once cleaned, if you have x-copy, stick the disk in DF0: and click 'checkdisk'. You should see the very first track as a red '2' (copylock track) and the rest should be all green '0' meaning it's read the disk without errors!
