Ubuntu 5.10 and floppy disk drive
I have installed Ubuntu 5.10 on two reasonably new X86 PCs (AMD Athlon). I used Suse 9.3 but Ubuntu seems to be clearer and quicker. All is fine except that floppy disk drives do not work anymore on either of these machines. I get "connection failed"-message and "given UDI is not a mountable volume". If I try the longer GUI-way, via home -> media -> floppy, there is no error message nor is there anything else. It seems that Ubuntu cannot find the drive, nothing happens there. What should I do? There are many files only on my floppies which I find useful. Thanks for answering.
