    I'm messing around with a TEAC USB floppy. MorphOS recognizes it but I cannot see a floppy icon or mount anywhere. How do I get that working? Also, will it read an Amiga formatted floppy disk?

    @TheMagicM,

    I have had one, given for free in an association with some floppy diks, more than 6 years. I tested it on my powermac g4 and my pegasos 2 g4, it worked. But only with floppies disks formated for pc, 1.44 mb. Is this format fat 16 or fat 12 ? I had no use of it and no more any floppy disks. So I gave it for free, someone was interested, I send it.

    Works here on G5/MOS3.17 flawless (both: DD and HD)
    Maybe the icon is located in "MyMorphOS"-Drawer and has to be dropped outside.
    If it does'nt mount automatically, you can use "Mounter" to mount manually. Sometimes it needs to dismount and mount again, till icon appears.
    Btw: Mounter says Dostype=FAT (1,4MB Disk)
