Description

Is there any use of floppy in a VM? If the Floppy option is not checked in the Settings of the VM, in the guest the Floppy device must not exist.

Using VirtualBox 3.0.49315 (release). Host = WinXP, Guest = Win2003 x32, newest Guest Additions installed.

In the VM settings, Floppy is unchecked. In the Guest, Windows Explorer shows Floppy A: in the left pane.

it will show /dev/fd0 I/O error, but I don't check Floppy option.
