[vcf-midatlantic] Bad disks

I went to format 5.25 disks from a NOS box still in shrink wrap. There 
were 11 disks in the box ("pay for 10, get one free"). Every disk 
resulted in a track error at a different track.

If you can't trust never-opened disks to be good, then how do you 
acquire disks?

Is there any good software to repair the errors?
