I give up. Exactly the same thing on my dads pc.

The Amiga won't read any disks at all? And you've swapped your motherboard and have the same problem? In that case, I suggest a fourth option:

d) The floppy drive is dead.

If you mean your PC won't read any floppy disks, there is another option:

e) You've bought a box of duff disks.

Remember that the PC cannot read Amiga disks without extra hardware (a "Catweasle" disk controller).

Have you tried putting a double-density disk into the Amiga, mounting PC0:, then formatting it as an MS-DOS disk using System/Format? You may have more luck this way that formatting disks with the PC.
