Why don't you format the disc and copy a working version onto it. Or exchange the magnetic disks?

Are you telling me I can pull out the magnetic strip out of the disk, swap it with a new one, then copy the games files onto the disk and it’s like new?

The most efficient way to repair disks is to clean the surface.
If you find a dirty white sheed, you may have to swap the sheet, too.

More easy is to give the disk a new magnetism with simple re-format it. Give it a try.

Ok what should I clean it with? If that doesn't work how do I go about reformatting it? There are scratches on the surface of disk.

If there are scratches, I would exchange it with a new disc. The white sheed should be clean, better swap it with a new one, too. Take care to put the right side of the magnetic disk up when re-assembling.
Check twice if there is any dust or dirt before use the disk in your drive again!
I know some bad stories of death floppy drives after collecting too much dirt.
After that just use your favourite copying tool to get F1 on your disk again.

What sort of copying methods do you use to get the game back on to the disk? I assume I format the new disk in the MSX first? Can I use a magnetic strip from a 1.44 MB disk?

There are many opinions about the durability of the data on 1.44mb hd disks. Some go lucky with them, I didn't. I have had very bad experience with their use. The data is only available for a short time without errors. There are still DD floppy disks available, so I recommend to use 720k DD floppy disks for such collector's items.
