OK, the device itself is good. Have you connected any other usb devices
to that port to make sure the port's good? Not that I think it isn't,
but it never hurts to be sure.

Yes, pen drives. Those work. Odd.


I have in /etc/fstab

/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto rw,sync,user,noauto,nosuid,exec,nodev 0 0

After all these years (my first Linux was Caldera in 1999) I find it mind-blowing that mounting devices is still the same mess as usual when every other modern OS detects and mounts devices automagically....


Oh well...

One thing to keep in mind is that a USB floppy drive will not be
/dev/fd0. It will show up as a SCSI drive. I believe that yours
showed up as /dev/sdg.

Not odd at all. It just means that your hardware is fine. Have you
tried commenting out the floppy line in fstab and trying again? It's
possible that there's something in it that's making trouble.

It may be that the drive isn't getting enough power. I've seen similar
issues with external USB hard disks where they can't get enough power
and reset a lot. Using a dual USB cable or external PSU fixes it but
there's a lot of differences between machines. Other than that, I have
an external Toshiba USB drive and that works fine - but obviously not
the same model as yours.

Thanks,

Good pointer Ian. And thanks everyone else who also replied. In the end, I decided not to lose any more time with this (after all, all I wanted to do was backing up an ancient BeOS install diskettte to a diskette image file), and proceeded to do this on a WinXP machine then email the diskette image file to myself, which I then downloaded on the Linux box

No worries. :-) For the record, many USB floppy drives don't support
Double Density disks (720k if you like) either... as I found out a few
years ago when trying to use it to bootstrap an old Amiga with limited
connectivity
