So far I have used Linux Mint for about 12 days, and have one major complaint.
Every time I boot up my computer and log in, the operating system tries to mount a floppy disk, despite there being no floppy in the floppy drive. I don't want to wear out the drive, as it works well, but I'm afraid that this happening repeatedly will eventually and unnecessarily do so.
With that said, is there a way to get the operating system to not try to automatically mount the contents of the floppy drive? Every post I've seen about this applies to someone who does not have a floppy drive, and I do have a floppy drive, and thus do not want to merely disable it.
I am using Linux Mint 14.1 with the MATE desktop environment. It is 32-bit and runs on a 2GHz AMD Sempron 3000+ Processor with 2GB RAM, a CD drive, CD/DVD drive, a card reader taken from a newer computer and cut to fit in a floppy slot in the case, and a 3 1/2" floppy drive.

They say that a three-year old can use Windows 8. I say that's a bit of a regression. When I was three, I could use DOS.
A computer without Windows is like a fish without a bicycle.
