The Commodore 64's floppy drive is actually more complex than other PC drives, so other disks are NOT compatible. You'll have to get disks that are specific to the C64.

You need the "SHUGART" interface protocols on the drive. So it can interface with the timing and positioning.

If you are unable to find disks / a working drive, some hardware hackers have managed to emulate it with a Raspberry Pi.
