STFM can't open disks, says they are blank when they are not

I've seen this problem before but can't remember what it was!

1mb / tos 1.02 STFM which works to desktop, when you click on the A icon to open a disk it shows the disk is blank when i know there is data on the disk, tried several disks

SO, changed drive to a known working one / changed PSU to a known working one / changed floppy IC and DMA IC

same problem

The drive can format a disk but when i open the disk there is loads of garbled data which is even more wierd considering it has just been formatted! :?
