I bought USB FDD Floppy drive. It is recognized but I can not make it to run/mount.
Trying to mount or format:
I read that I need a “floppy” kernel module. But I don’t know where I can get one.
kj@ibm-beast~ $ sudo modprobe floppy modprobe: FATAL: Module floppy not found in directory /lib/modules/5.1.14-788.native
UPDATE: I tested on POP!_OS (Ubuntu) and run:
sudo ufiformat /dev/sdc
It does make a success format. But the floppy is still not recognized. And I can not format it:
sudo mkfs.fat /dev/sdc attribute "partition" not found mkfs.fat: unable to discover size of /dev/sdc
I tested on two floppies (do not have more at the moment). There is a chance that both don’t work.
