Floppy Drive Support

Postby Rousha on Fri Jun 19, 2009 3:08 pm

Would i be right in thinking that Linux Mint does not automatically install FDD Drivers. i habe now installed Mint 6 on two PC and neither FDD is recognised or operational? If so where can I get the drivers from please? I use Ubuntu ontwo other PCs/Laptop and the FDD work fine.
Thanks :roll:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have found the answer elsewhere on the forum.
Typed this into the terminal
sudo mkdir /media/floppy0

The FDD now shows up on 'My Computer'
