Unhappy Accessing Floppy Through GNOME

After system boot (linux) .It is displaying <floppy icon > on desktop when i click it

displaying with a small dialogbox :

There is no action associated with "Floppy".
You can configure GNOME to associate applications with file types. Do you want to associate an application with this file type now?

and with a ASSOCIATE APPLICATION BUTTON when I click it it asking me to choose some options like (program to run , MIME type,File name extensions ,etc...)

what is the problem with my floppy (dont say floppy corrupted)
