Mounting fd0 under QNX 6.2.1

I need to mount a floppy-disk, which is formatted using fat, but I don’t know how to do this.


mount -t dos /dev/fd0 /floppy ?

yea, I tried this the first time I wanted to mount my fat-fd :slight_smile:, but I cannot list anything if I change directory to /fs/fd0…

May be your floppy is demaged. Check it…

In QNX 6.x.x is buggy support of fat filesystem. Some files/directories makes invisible or unaccesable. It happens when filename includes cyrillic letters… Check this too…

Disk is ok and no cyrillic letters and I still don’t know how to read a fd, but now I have copied the files from the fd to a cdrw and cd’s are easy to mount :slight_smile: .

If you have a different machine, copy the contents onto that one, format it on QNX and then copy the data onto it and check if you can read it from QNX, use dosfs when you format it.

ok, but the cdrw-solution us much easier for me :slight_smile:.
