Floppy drive not recognized
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. When I boot the computer with the floppy drive installed, I can hear the disk turning for a few seconds, but once the computer is booted, it won't recognize the drive. There's an icon for it on the Computer-File Browser, but when I try to mount it, I get the error message: "no media in the drive", even though there is. I clicked on detect media, and the disk spun the first time, but on subsequent times, nothing happened. I've tried all three of my floppy disks, with the same results. They seem to work fine in Windows. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem might be. I'd be happy to hear it. Thanks.
