Question What are the settings to fdformat a USBfloppy with Ubuntu8.04 on a Dell D810Laptop

The USB diskette drive is working fine. But the fdformat function doesn't seem to recognize the USB floppy. When the floppy is mounted I have a /dev/sdb device. In my devices (/dev) I don't have fd0 or fd1 or fd0H1440.

first thing you should do is with the floppy inserted but not mounted

fdisk -l

and copy/paste results here we will use that info to make a command for you to run or at least tell you where to point your fdformat
