It does not appear to be mounted.
Look at the output of the dmesg command for errors.

The "dmesg" command gave me more output than the terminal window could handle,
apparently...I go all the way to the top of the terminal window and my "dmesg"
command is beyond that. Here is the last few lines of it's output.

Here's a smarter "dmesg":

Much grass...
translates as mucho gracias for all the help.

The website solution worked, I now have filenames in /media/floppy0.
It's confusing because that was the command "udisks" I was using when
I came here. The only thing I can attribute success to is that "modprobe"
thing you had me do. Such is life.
