Do you use MS-DOS format floppies?

I often use floppies to port stuff between my 3b1 at home and PC-AT at work.
I always format the floppies at home.  When I write the disk at home & read
it at work, it _always_ works.  I have a problem going the other way, though.
9 out of 10 times (or more, it's very frustrating) when I write the disk on
the PC and try to read it on the 3b1, I get a "can't read file allocation
table" error.  If I take the floppy back to the PC, it reads it fine.  This
happens whether I use a freshly formatted floppy, or one which I just used
for a 3b1->PC transfer.  Anybody have any suggestions?



I know it's a big company, but I'm not really nobody at, try
