Always test your drive is working well with some unimportant known good disks for a while, take a look under the shutter for signs of damage or ware.
I think you may have something. It's not detecting lack of write protection and its ability to detect disk type just took a sharp nose-dive.
You mean the shutter on the floppy? Not sure how to look for wear and tear there.
Guess I try sticking in a different floppy drive?
