Try the following

if that does not work, mount it as root
[root localhost ~]# mkdir -p /media/floppy
[root localhost ~]# mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy
if the above gives you error messgage then specify filesystem type msdos, vfat,etc [root localhost ~]# mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /media/floppy

Hello Antonio,

Thanks for the help. I was able to mount the drive. How do I permanently write these commands to a file so that the drive would automatically mount when I insert a floppy and to which file(s) would I write these commands to?
Jeff


You can't.

A floppy disk drive does not "signal" the PC or OS when a disk is inserted. It is not a smart device.

Is a USB flash drive not an option? Floppies are so 90s.

Regards,
Ed.
