I am able to click on Detect media and the light comes on for my floppy drive. All files on the disk are not visible. There is another post that says:

Via the menu option System --> Administration --> Users and Groups

Click on Advanced Settings (bottom right - under your account that is shown - there may be more than one user shown)

Click on User Privileges and check the box that says "Use floppy Drives" I can not figure out how to get to this screen as nothing such as Administratin - Users and Groups is found. Where is this located at?
