Erm..? There is a floppy drive though.
I might be mistaken, but I think 'floppy' is for a real floppy, not a
USB floppy. (didn't you say yours is hooked up via USB?)
Yes there is an adapter on the back of the drive with a usb plugged into
the m/b header.
It is odd because an external USB drive works fine but using this
adapter give me the same results as O/P
The drive is ticking all the time with the LED flashing. I am worried
this is going to wear the drive out. It is old after all.
It is a Linux problem because when I boot to windows 7 the drive
operated normally. In ubuntu or opensuse the drive is continuously being
read all the time. The only way to stop it is to put in a floppy disk
but this is not a solution to the problem.
