I'm not sure the newer Teac floppies are as multi-architecture friendly.
Recently I bought a brand new 5.25" Teac for a project that I was working
on. The manufacturer of the controller board went so far as to list Teac
drives as being the best ones to use.

I spent two days fighting with it before in desparation I pulled the one
out of my old 486 (an older model Teac). It worked flawlessly, first try.
Needless to say the new drive is now in the 486, and I picked up a bunch of
older Teac 5.25" drives at the last swapmeet.
