Any floppy that I put into the drive and then try to read takes a while then gives me an error message "Directory not found!". What do I need to do to be able to read floppy disks?
Reading floppies is like reading any other item in Linux. Insert the disk, mount it to a directory, navigate to the mount point directory with the file manager. The floppy disk in question must be in good condition, and properly formatted, obviously, and the floppy drive must also be in proper working order,
entry for my floppy drive is as follows;/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto rw,user,noauto,exec 0 0
The directory /mnt/floppy
exists, as a permanent mount point. While DE independent, this is what I see when my grub floppy is mounted, while using dolphin in KDE.
