Default Floppy Drive

I previously posted a question pertaining to creating a Grub Boot Floppy, but my problem appears to go deeper than that. I appear to only have limited access to the floppy drive, because I am having a problem even reading them. This problem remains, even when logged in as root. I have checked the permissions as far as I know how to, to give read, write and execute permissions to both the root and root group. The floppy works perfectly under Windows, so I doubt that there is any kind of hardware problem. To be brief, I created a device icon on the desktop, set the path and permissions to the floppy, and I also looked at /dev/fd0, but at this location, it says that these are only links, and have no permissions attributes. Is there something more that I can look for?
