Not directly releated to this specific problem, but I'll add it as a sidetrack anyway:
In the old days of DOS floppy disks, the same physical size disks (5.25" or 3.5") came in different packing densities: 360K, 720K, 1.44M. When you replaced the disk with another one, DOS would read the format code off the disk, and the driver would operate according to the physical formatting.
I had a machine that for a period failed to change to the correct format. When switching from, say, a 360K floppy to a 1.44M one, I got read errors unless I rebooted the PC.
I didn't open the PC case very often, so it took a while before I saw the problem: The 34-pin connector to the floppy was not pushed properly in, but was slightly slanted, so that the last pin in the row didn't make contact. The last pin was the one that the floppy drive used to signal that the physical floppy had been replaced, and the driver should adopt to the format of the new disk. DOS never got this signal, and wasn't aware that there was a new floppy in place, but continued to read as if it was the same old one. (There was no buffering/caching in those days, so there was no risk of flushing buffers to the wrong disk.)
Pushing the 34-pin connector firmly onto the pins, so that even the last pin made contact, solved the problem.

Well, I kind of get the anatomical version, otherwise: "Whoosh!"
