Hello,try modprobe floppy first.
I am try to use the floppy on Dell Dimension 8300 with fc12 but it
Here is what I did:
# mkdir /mnt/floppy
# mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 mnt/floppy
mount: special device /dev/fd0 does not exist
I look in the dev directory the fd0 does not exist.
I will appreciate help
and thank you in advace
oops.. My apology I recall the previous entry that I was try different
dir "etc" I correct to "dev" and every thing works fine.
thank you very much.
run "modprobe floppy", this may not be too much of problem, but I still
can't access the diskette when I try to access it by double clicking the
icon. The message appears "unable to mount location no media in the
drive". By the way the diskette and floppy are OK with windows I also
try few other diskette. I do not know how to access from command line.
You can try to access the drive by typing in:
cd /mnt/floppy (that is where is shows up on my system)
This should list all of the files readable on the drive.
Any idea what else I could be doing wrong?
Don't know. Not many folks use floppy disks anymore.
You did state that the disks are read/writable under Windows, correct?
I'll verify that my disk drive works this evening as I still have one or two around and a computer with a micro-floppy drive.
it didn't show any files. I have 2 computer both behaving the same.
