Accessing floppy on Win98 over network
I have a Win98 computer with a floppy disk shared on the network.
When I try to access the floppy from ubuntu 12.04 over the network
Nautilus sees the disk but none of the files on it.
If I right click and click properties ,It shows as type folder
and file system type cifs
It seems nautilus thinks it is a folder not a disk.
Files on Other shared folders on the same computer are assessable.
When I boot Windows8 I can see and open files on the same floppy.
Yes I know floppies are outmoded,and there is another way I can get the data off
it. I just like things to work!!
I did some more testing on this problem. I tried another floppy disk and
was able to see and read the files
It seems that if there are only a couple of small files on the disk,nautilus does
not see them,but if there is a large file it does.
This does not happen on shared folders only the floppy disk
