Has anybody tried the USB floppy disk driver in awhile? I just did to
read an old disk, and I couldn't read a single byte.

I started thinking maybe the hardware's bad, but dd didn't raise en
error even after I pulled it out and got "USB Disconnect" on the
screen from kernel log.

I still don't know if the code is broken or if my hardware's bad. It
worked 15 years ago with a 2.6 series kernel.
