The screeching noises coming from the floppy drives are probably the sounds of your drive heads being killed by fungal growth in the old disks. You should check the film in the disks and see if there are any tiny spots on them, if there are you should throw them away. If you must use floppy disks, get brand new ones, and clean out your floppy drives first. You can get floppy drive cleaning kits that are a disk with a pad inside them that wipes your drive heads clean. These work great if you're not up to disassembling the drive and cleaning it manually.
