Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but if his explanation of "Trying to write to a physical hole in the disk" was true it wouldn't be able to work with write protected disks.

Surely it actually just reads from a spot that's either been physically damaged (which seems mighty excessive, anyone mind taking a close look at their Leander floppies to check?) or just has a weak/fuzzy bit and checks that it doesn't get the same result from multiple reads.
