Floppy disk

I'm afraid I went a bit nuts today and ordered a bunch of stuff the damned FDD has packed up though I was trying to load an old Simpsons game when a horrible grinding noise started coming from the disk, followed by an unrecoverable disk error with that and any subsequent disks I tried, including my dodgy looking Workbench disk. Deep joy I'm a little peeved, and have contacted the seller on eBay about a partial refund to cover getting a new drive. Probably a dry bearing causing an inconsistent head speed or something. It's a good job they don't cost £250 apiece like they did when I got my first A500.
