The 1.44Meg floppy won't mount in my Nautilus file browser. When I try to mount it, it says there is no media in the drive. Yet, I can write to the floppy through the terminal using the 'cp' command. I can enter the command:
mount -t ext2 /floppy and it mounts. I have also run a check and the disk itself is 100% clean.
So, why can't I get the nautilus browser to open up the floppy? Is there a way to see the actual floppy from the terminal?
EDIT: So that everyone can satisfy their curiousity - I am trying to boot from a floppy. My own bootstrap and image.
so it mounts and you can view the file contents in the terminal, right? and after it's mounted you can navigate there in nautilus? or you can't find the mountpoint? i'm not sure what you're asking.
I was trying:
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /floppy
what I realized is that I had the
/floppy directory not under /media. So I moved the directory to /media/floppy. Once I mounted it the correct way, I got a floppy icon in my nautilus browser where I could see the contents. So, why is there an actual floppy drive icon if I can't click on it and see the floppy contents?
