Ok I can see I'm up against it with my floppy Drive... Unbuntu decided I didn't need one, which mostly I don't, except now!
I found this on mint::
"After about half a day of trying to figure out why my floppy drive would not mount in Mint, it turns out that the good people at Ubuntu decided to disable the floppy module from loading at startup. Now, some users may not notice this change at all, since they don't use their floppy drive. However, those of us that do, will also tear out hair, until we stumble across this solution. To paraphrase the solution, here is what you must do:
1. Open up your favorite text editor as root, and edit /etc/fstab
2. Comment out the line that mentions your floppy device. For example, here is mine after the fact:
#/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 vfat users,noauto 0 0
3. You may now mount your floppy. (If it doesn't show up in nautilus, type the following into a terminal: sudo mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0) (If that reports an unknown filesystem, then type sudo mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0)
4. If you ever need to delete a file from the floppy, it is best to press Shift + delete rather than just pressing delete. This will permenantly remove the selected file(s), rather than sending them to a trash bin hidden on the floppy.
My /etc/fstab looks like this... a little help putting these two together would be appreceated, don't want to mess this up":O}
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=156e052d-f6c6-45a7-8fb7-d7e15f970270 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=332156ac-610a-4080-a251-b14e81d7315e none swap sw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sr0 /media/floppy1 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
Also I've forgotten how to uncomment, I know it's just a mark at the start of the line...but which Mark??":O}
