Thanks. I'd rather it be a problem like that than all the disks being bad.

The problem wasn't obvious, since the drive speed test says a pretty constant 299.7rpm and the disk media test passed.

I'll try powering the drive from a different source and/or using a different Molex-to-floppy power adaptor cable, maybe that could help. (Also, could soldering a capacitor between the floppy power connector ground and 5V pins help?)
