Media test issue

Thanks for your suggestions.  I obtained the cleaning disks, 3.5 and 5.25.  The TEAC FD55GF is sitting in the top slot of the case, with the cover off, so I can get to the head easily.  Keeping the head clean is paramount, as you noted.

I still want to find a way to check the calibration of the drives, particularly the 5.25s.  I read in Troubleshooting & Repairing PC Drives & Memory Systems by Steven J. Bigelow (TAB Books, 1994) about a company named Accurite which makes diagnostic disks.  From what I can tell they used to manufacture the Dysan diagnostic products as well.

I found their web site at http://www.accurite.com.  However, I'm not having much success contacting them through any of their published channels.  Do you have any experience with the company or recommendation of their products?
