I'd like to know if there are any programs available to get me the name of the filesystem used on a floppy, instead of just asking me if I want to format the disk.

The file command identifies file types, including file system images. So what do you think happens on a floppy disk device file?
This will even answer correctly if some wise guy copied an archive directly to a floppy as if it were a tape drive.
The thread got moved and I can't make comments here so I repost in responce for now. @snark: Good idea, the drummachine is an emu sp1200.
