Is there a supplier of new 720k DD disks. I require them for use in a Roland MIDI Player. Old 720k disks without bad sectors are rare.

Use 1.44 disks
Cover the tab without the slide with cellotape and DOS format them.

FORMAT A:/U/F:720

in MSDOS 6.22

Is that you John.
re using dos format mode my roland still can read the 1.4 format underneath the 720 format picky dard device !!.
I have run a strong magnet over the disk and also reformatted a Mac disk and even with the hole blanked out it still works out that it is a HD disk and wants to format it. Andrew up at computer North has a few boxes of DD's so im working through those for goodies.
