Linux Hardware (Undetectable Floppy Drive)
Posted on 2006-11-26
Am totally new to Fedora (to Linux in general) and am facing a problem with my desktop (Linux Fedora) that the floppy drive is not detectable (not shown in Computer Icon in Desktop). I can see the CD rom drive, the USB flash memory (if I plug it), the filesystem and network icons but no floppy drive.
I did some searching in Google and I found that I need to add the following line in /etc/fstab file
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
When I saved it. I can see an icon called floppy. However, when I click it, an error msg saying:
Unable to mount the selected floppy drive.
Mount: you must specify the filesystem type.
Can you help me in accessing the floppy drive.
