I am currently having a floppy disk drive problem. I have searched all over the Internet for a solution to my problem and I have not found an answer. You are my last resort.
For a long time I always mounted the floppy drive by typing, "mount /dev/fd0 /floppy," and it worked fine. Then one day I rebooted the system without unmounting 'fd0,' and now I cannot access it.
I have tried different command combinations and nothing works.
I keep on getting the following error:
mount: /dev/fd0: Device not configured
Later after researching my problem, I found out that I could have used 'mtools' all along. When I tried using 'mtools,' to access the 'fd0' I get the following error:
plain_io: Device not configured
init A: could not read boot sector
cannot initialize 'A:'
Do you have any suggestions. I would really appreciate it if you can help out.
