Package: fdutils
Version: 5.5-20050303-2
Severity: normal

I am trying to move to usb floppies in my environment.  Unfortunately,
superformat cannot grok usb floppy drives

$ sudo superformat /dev/sdg
Not a floppy drive

Which is probably broken as designed.
I am primarily looking to have something that does allow low level formatting
of floppies to be documented.

This is not a bug. You can read the following at the end of the package 
description: « Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, 
because these do not allow direct access to the floppy controller. »

Please have a look at the package ufiformat instead.
