On Linux (Debian based): If I copy files onto a floppy disk in an external floppy drive and put this disk later into another floppy drive, the disk output is … interesting. An excerpt:
- actual content is 5 files, the scrambled list contains way more (quit counting on "more than there should be")
- the disk isn't recognized properly
- filesystem's format is ext2, but the machine tries to mount as
- manually specifying the filesystem's type doesn't work
- disk is okay, same results with different disks
- problem arises only between these two guys (external, USB Floppy drive vs. internal Floppy drive): The both just tread "their" disks properly
Back on the "original" drive, everything works properly.
And yes, I've tried mounting it manually.
Question: Where would you start looking for answers for this curious behaviour on the affected machine?
dmesg output on this:
Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/fd0p1 -- Invalid argument. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/fd0p1 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting. Error: Failed to add partition 1 (Invalid argument)
/dev/fd0p1 on the machine too. There's the proper
Note on the Error message: I do get this error message on different Linux systems with different file systems at different occasions from time to time … up to now, I'm not aware of having run into any problems. I won't trust this peace, though
