this may seem really stupid but are you going through this step
$mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
cp filename.gif /mnt/floppy
I had a similar problem but I was forgetting to mount the disk drive first.
The information is stored in memory until you unmount the drive and then the info is transferred to the floppy disk.
Hope this help, if this is wrong or doesn't help my apologies in advance
