Double density floppies have a raw capacity of 1MB. The usable capacity once formatted then depends on the file system, for DOS/Windows it's 720kB and for the Amiga 880kB. Equivalently for high density floppies it's 2MB raw, 1.44MB DOS and 1.76MB Amiga.

New double density floppies are getting hard to come by. You can easily find old, used ones on eBay or just by asking around on any Amiga forum such as this one. You can also use high density floppies, they work well enough for at least a while, even though they aren't really intended for double density drives (different kind of magnetic material).
