So i've installed a floppy drive (in order to do something) and the green light comes on. I took this out of an older machine hoping it world work in my working machine so that i could move a file over onto a floppy disk.

I'm not seeing the floppy drive in the places menu and i can't 'cd a:" to access it either.

anyways ideas as to whats going on here?

I just had to do the same thing on my computer to flash the bios, but I didn't have a problem with ubuntu recognizing it.... Than again I did all of that in Windoze, so i am not positive that ubuntu would have recognized it. sounds like a missing driver to me.
