floppy drive mount problems
A friend of mine is having a problem with an install of Natty I did for him. He is trying to mount some old floppies to copy their contents to a flash drive. The GUI disk utility detected the drive but refused to read it, saying that there was no media in the drive. I read another post about a similar problem that said it may have appeared as something other than /dev/fd0. I checked /dev/sdc, and fdisk said the partition table did not look like one, and when I tried to mount it, it went through with no errors and told me that the mount point was empty and the device was not mounted. The system does not need additional drivers. They do not want to have to reinstall Windows just to read the disks, but I have already gone through everything I can think to do. Any ideas?
