Hmm, I hope it was not common, although my nephew had the same problem. Bought sd-snatcher for 160 euros (somewhere around the year 2000), came home, put in disk 1 and was greeted by oasis. He was in shock. My father had an atari, with (i believe) xcopy, so I copied my originals back to his disks, only to find out disk two had bad sectors and the disk mades that horrible sound. But even with this problem, he could play the game afterwards, and the copy protection was working aswell.

Xcopy on the Amiga and copy in nibble mode. Worked like a charm for most copy-protections. It was the only reason we saw Amiga's at out local MSX club meetings ;-)

Yeah I have the bad disk issue with my Snatcher set. Disk 3 was making the noises of hell Sad And it was BNIB (truly) about 1.5 years ago. I guess aging of floppy disks is just more random than anything else (of course how they are stored has some influence as well but perfect storage is no guarantee).

True, while dumping more games of this collection yesterday I also encountered by first broken game: F1 DOCHUIKI, made a loud high-pitch noise while in the disk drive and the converted dmk results in a boot error disk. I will still keep it with 'bad dump' label though. I hope this was the last bad floppy Shocked!
