[ubuntu] Problem reading Floppy Disk Drive

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and when I put in the sudo fdisk -l command in the terminal it reads my hard drive, floppy drive, but not my floppy drive. When I go to the Place tab and click on computer and click on the floppy drive icon, it says "unable to mount no media in the drive." There is a floppy disk in the drive. Does anyone have any ideas of way this is happening and how to fix it? Thanks (Hardware)
