It was originally working, then I unlocked the Floppy Disk icon from the launcher.
Now I need to access the floppy and I can not figure out how to restore the floppy drive icon to the sidebar.
Is there any procedure to restore access to my floppy drive?
Try this. just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
udisks --mount /dev/fd0
This will not work on a HP6530b.
Locate the floppy with:
sudo blkid -o list -w /dev/null
In the generated list you will find a column with the name
In this column should be an entry with name
vfat, that is the floppy disk.
In the device column you will see a name like
Thats the name of the floppy disk which you can use in:
udisks --mount /dev/sdc
Please note that there should be a disc in the floppy disk drive at all times.
