Take a look at the 'dmesg' output and see what it is telling you about the floppy drives. Then, look at your /etc/fstab file and see if things 'agree'.
If not, adapt the /etc/fstab to reflect the correct hardward devices to be mounted. The USB one may be tricky. Search on this site about USB drives and you see a bunch of examples on permissions, mount point, etc.
Have fun!
