More to add...
I know that writing to 3.5" HD disks with the hole covered to make
them look like DD is frowned upon, but maybe it could help determine
why I get errors with the real DD disks.
While trying to back up my DD disks onto HD hole covered disks I got
an error. Its not the disk because I've tried two and they both fail
at the same spot.
Also, are DD disks the same as Single Sided 3.5" 360/400k
disks? Except for the double sided part?
What are good sources for DD disks TODAY, not NOS disks, but new
disks? Is athana the only place out there making DD disks?
When copying from drive A to drive B it has an error at the end of
the disk. Is this where a data rate issue would be the worst?

And the error:

(can't be too save with my only good boot disk, A:. :)
