Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Depends on the Era. I have a bunch of 720k floppes from my Amiga days in the late 80s and 90s that still work fine. The quality seems to have gone downhill from about there. I personally wouldnt trust any floppies manafactured after about 1995 at all.

My original BBC Elite disk 5.25" floppy still works fine.
