Description

Using the following command on a Linux or a Windows host I get an error:

C:\Program Files\Sun\VirtualBox>vboxmanage storageattach "test" --storagectl "Floppy Controller" --port 0 --device 0 --type fdd --medium host:A:
Sun VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.1.6
(C) 2005-2010 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
All rights reserved.

error: Invalid host floppy drive name "A:"

Using the GUI I can attach and access the floppy drive without any problem. Extract from "test.xml":

<StorageController name="Floppy Controller" type="I82078" PortCount="1">
        <AttachedDevice type="Floppy" port="0" device="0">
          <HostDrive src="A:"/>
        </AttachedDevice>
      </StorageController>
