I recommend using one of those floppy drive cleaning disks. I had the problem with many of my Amiga floppy drives not reading disks, but after using one of these cleaning disks in them all they're fine! There was no need for me to open them up, of course I had to wait for it to arrive from overseas but you may be able to find one in a local computer or stationary shop.

After using one of these, I would only use brand new floppy disks from now on, or at least check your old ones to make sure they have no tiny spots on them, they will ruin your drive heads.
