Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Is it only me, or was floppies (1.2M) in general more reliable than stiffies (1.44M)?

And in turn, stiffies are more reliable than CD...

Few years back, I was transferring older student work from removable devices to online library. I hardly had any problem (once I had located a reader) to read the 15 years old stiffies, but had very little chance with 5 years old CD.
