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?
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.
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.
