Public bug reported:

System: Ubuntu 9.04 amd64  with updates [ 26.03.09 ]
Everthing I do with a floppydisc fails, I tried it with several disks and floppy devices:

If I format the floppydisc:
root at schorsch:/home/maxe# fdformat /dev/fd0
Doppel-seitig, 80 Spuren, 18 Sektoren pro Spur. Gesamtkapazität 1440 kB.
Formatieren … Beendet
Überprüfe ... Problem beim Lesen von Zylinder 1, es wurde 18432 erwartet, aber 2048 gelesen

If I write an Image to a floppydisc:
root at schorsch:/home/maxe# dd if='/home/maxe/Desktop/DRDFLASH.IMG' of=/dev/fd0
dd: Schreiben in „/dev/fd0“: Input/output error
41+0 Datensätze ein
40+0 Datensätze aus
20480 Bytes (20 kB) kopiert, 3,67766 s, 5,6 kB/s

On a other OS this work perfektly. I think I can exclude a hardware
