Floppy Drive Test Report

I decided to go through my collection of old 3.5" floppy drives and test them all, in order to filter out which ones still work or not. I compiled a complete (LaTeX typesetted) report on the test results here. A total of 20 drives were investigated. In short, 13 were OK, 4 were broken and 3 were untestable.

There are tests on the following floppy drive models in the report:
* Citizen LR102061 A.L.
* JPN ZFDD1.44M
* Mitsubishi MF355C-252M
* NEC FD1138H
* Panasonic JU-256A276P
* Panasonic JU-257-204P
* Panasonic JU-257A604P
* Panasonic JU-257A606P (x2)
* Sony MPF920 (x4)
* Sony Model MPF40W-00
* Sony Model MPF520-1
* TEAC FD-235HF
* TEAC FD-235HG
* TEAC FD-335HF
* Y-E Data YD-702B-6039B (x2)
