I found a USB floppy drive at a yard sale... yeah I know... kill me now.
I plugged it in, but it's not coming up although lsusb shows it. The
drive whirrs and the head steps, I can hear it doing so. But nothing
pops up to ask what to do with it nor is there any entry in /media for
it. Damn thing sounds like it's formatting the disk!! Weird. lsusb

Candy Tech, who would have figured. Anyone know of this "device" ?
