Unhappy mounting floppy drive

Hi everyone,

can't mount my laptop's floppy drive. Please advice. This is the prompt I'm getting:

Called: mount /dev/fd0
mount: according to mtab, /dev/fd0 is already mounted on /media/floppy
mount failed

However when I try to access it (or mount it for that matter from Konqueror) it attempts to mount the drive and then prompts me with an error saying:

The process for the media protocol died unexpectedly.

Please advice.
