I was cleaning up when I came across some old floppies with stuff I
wished to read.
Ubuntu 10.04 would not mount the floppy although the drive light cam on
for a short while and the drive 'clicked'.
The file /etc/fstab includes the following entry:
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8
when issuing the command:
the drive clicks and the terminal reports :-
mount: block device /dev/fd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
Then examining the file /etc/mtab, it shows no entry for the floppy.
Issuing the command umount /etc/fd0 the terminal reports:-
umount: /dev/fd0 is not mounted (according to mtab)
I cannot read the floppy - it is not mounted although it was reported as
Any ideas ??
