USB floppy drive
 
I have a USB floppy drive. How do I open up files in the floppy disk (what directory do I have to look in?) When I boot up linux, and when it is scanning for hardware it checks USB devices, it finds the drive, the floppy drive light turns on and makes some sounds, how do I get to it.

When I have a internal floppy drive (connected to a IDE cable) it puts a icon for it.

How come when I have 1 CD drive it has 2 icons for it? And if I have 2 CD drives it show 4 icons. (this happends on most of my computers)

is your USB floppy in fstab? you need to mount it first....my fstab entry looks like this:
/dev/sda /mnt/floppy vfat defaults 0 0

yours will probly be something similar to that....
