Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:59:41 EDT
Description of problem: Linux formatted floppy disks will not mount.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Format floppy disk for linux and use as normal.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: Floppy disk fails to mount.
Expected results: Floppy disk to mount.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0,
or too many mounted file systems
Nautilus was unable to mount the floppy drive.
The floppy is probably in a format that cannot be mounted.
init A: sector size too big
Cannot initialise 'A:'
Seems to me I might have duplicated a report at bug74080.
Is this a contributing factor for Nilmoni's problem at bug75030 ?
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?
