Where to buy?

Does anyone know where to buy new 3.5" DD floppies?
Everywhere I look, they're out-of-stock, and not comming back

Edit: sorry for posting this in the wrong thread.

Try eBay. Search for "New Floppy Disk",
e.g.
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

It's getting increasingly difficult to find these disks. They're not in stock at AmigaKit or Vesalia, for example.

I tried Amazon, but they don't have any either. I followed a sponsored link and found some, but they're not cheap ($44.99 for box of 50, $79.99 for 100, $179.99 for 250...)

Soon, it will be difficult to get even high density disks following Sony's announcement that they are to cease production.

Thank you again PROWLER.

I know, it's f'ing diffecult to find new oldware anymore! Remember when it was normal for your electronic store to have this? Ten years ago you could buy 10 DSDD discs for 1£?! I wish I had bougth a 1000 back then

Anyways... I've just just got an agreement to buy a a501 + a1200 + joysticks and 500 floppies for 200£.. I guess those floppies will have to do

Yes, those were the days. It's disappointing that all production of those disks has ceased, because everyone knows that they don't last for ever.
