Unfortunately I didn't test the drive in my PC first, so I don't know if it was working or not (though I'm pretty sure it was a working pull). Any ideas?
Are the floppy disks you trying DD (720K) or HD (1.4M) ones?

I had a similar problem with a modded Panasonic JU-257 and my 880K-formatted HD diskettes. I solved it by gluing a piece of plastic above the DD/HD sensing microswitch.
