I have connected a USB external floppy drive to my Macbook Pro (OSX El Capitan). I am unable to "view" the external drive, and hence unable to access the floppy content.
I have inserted a floppy, and saw a led turn on briefly. Have checked what Volumes are mounted (using terminal command) and do not see any volume that could correspond to the USB external drive.
Any idea how to resolve this first step problem?
