Yes I know - a floppy drive.
but.... I want to extract a whole bunch of samples of old floppy discs (about 300 discs) from my Ensoniq EPS sampler (that has died).
I am using a C program called Epslin to do this. This is working fine and I can extract the samples but the floppy drive can only be accessed as root, so everything I extract is owned by root so I have to go and 'chown' all the files. This is not a huge deal but painfull enough for me to do.
I am just not sure how to set the floppy drive so it can be accessed by me (normal user).
I have Googled this and done the following:
/lib/udev/rules..d/80-udisks2.rules- I have changed the references to
floppyso they end in a
- my user is part of the
- /dev/fd0 /floppy auto noauto,sync 0 0
When I try to just mount the floppy normally via terminal it says
only root can mount
If I try to mount the floppy from the icon in the file explorer an error box says
"failed to mount floppy disk" not authorised to perform operation
I am not sure what else I need to do?
This is on Debian 8
