My computer's floppy drive works with other distros but not Ubuntu 12.04.
I put in the floppy and detect it; but it will not mount. Can anyone help me with this please?
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10, and it's not recognizing my floppy drive (3.5" 1.44), although my computer's BIOS recognizes, and will attempt to boot from it if a floppy disk is in when booting. Is there a way to get Ubuntu to access the floppy drive?
Any way to make a USB drive appear to Windows like a floppy drive in drive A:? Here is why.
I am interested in this boot management software which recommends installation to a floppy drive in certain situations. What floppy drive on my ASUS P9X79 Pro board? Even if I still had a floppy drive, where would I get fresh new floppy disks these days?
Same computer, under Ubuntu 8.04 no problem at all.
Under 12.04, floppy drive is non existent for Ubuntu.
Drive and floppy disquette works well on DOS.
Computer boots from the floppy W98se, no problem at all.
After a reboot, Ubuntu (and Windows) detect an external floppy drive that isn't even there!It's not a big problem to find a new floppy drive that I can't access, but it really looks strange in the file manager.
This drive is recognized as /dev/fd0, I wan't to know how can I force Ubuntu to re-detect each connected device and get rid of this strange issue as quickly as possible.
I'm new to these forums, as well as Linux, but hopefully you guys can help me. I've been considering erasing Windows off my hard disk to gain some space, but until then, I want to know that I can do everything I'll want to do.
I've followed many tutorials and threads on the internet, but they never work for me.
