This is the error I received when I tried mounting internal floppy drive:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/fd0: Command-line `mount "/media/floppy0"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10.

Command mount /dev/fd0 was broken since lucid (i.e. Ubuntu 10.04).

Try using udisks --mount /dev/fd0 instead (or udisks --mount /media/floppy0 if you prefer).
