As it looks for me KDE try to mount the device instead of the volume. In this
case the error message is complete correct, but KDE should not try such things
, but should always check if the needed method is really available for the
device. Check for this line in lshal on the device:

org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.method_names = {'Mount', 'Unmount',
'Eject'}

Check the output of lshal for the volume of your floppy (there should be a
device with the devicefile of your floppy and volume properties. You can also
e.g. search for volume.fsversion = 'FAT12' if the floppy is VFAT) and replace
the udi (second line in the command) with udi of your device in the following
command (as root):

dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal \
/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_1553_17E8 \
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Mount \
string:Floppy string: array:string:sync,ro

Check if the device get mounted to /media/Floppy
