It's been years since I used floppies on a linux system; but when I still 
hada 3.5 inch drive, I recall that I first had to put a floppy in, then do 
a mount command.

I realize that the contributors on this thread, as well as the originator, 
may take this is a given, but in the event this hasn't been done, and it's 
a way to get the disk readable (I haven't seen it mentioned yet as 
possible solution).

My two cents,
