To access floppy disks, CDs, or DVDs, insert the medium into the
appropriate drive. For many types of removable media, a File Manager
window pops up automatically when the media is inserted or attached to
the computer. If File Manager does not open, double-click the icon for
that drive to view the contents.
Do not simply remove disks from the drive after using them. Floppy
disks, CDs, and DVDs must always be unmounted from the system first.
Close all File Manager sessions still accessing the medium, then
right-click the icon for the medium and select Eject
Volume or Unmount Volume from the menu.
Then safely remove the floppy disk, CD, or DVD when the tray
Floppy disks can also be formatted by clicking Computer > More Applications > System > Floppy Formatter. In the Floppy Formatter dialog, select the density of the
floppy disk and the file system settings: Linux native (ext2), the file
system for Linux, or DOS (FAT) to use the floppy with Windows systems.
