Comment 1 John R Leddy 2003-01-02 19:36:36 UTC
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0,
or too many mounted file systems


Mount error
Nautilus was unable to mount the floppy drive.
The floppy is probably in a format that cannot be mounted.


[****@localhost_****]$ mtools
                     $ mdir
init A: sector size too big
Cannot initialise 'A:'

Seems to me I might have duplicated a report at bug74080.

Comment 3 John R Leddy 2003-01-04 11:25:38 UTC
Is this a contributing factor for Nilmoni's problem at bug75030 ?

Comment 4 Stephen Tweedie 2003-01-06 13:14:37 UTC
This report needs more information (lots more).  What sort of filesystem did you
try to format it as --- FAT, ext2, something else?  What program did you use to
format it?  What do you mean by "use as normal" --- there are many different
ways to mount a disk?
