Figured a screenshot is worth a thousand words. http://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=6183
My setup below. Screenshot is of a PLOP boot manager floppy disk of mine. I dragged and dropped /mnt/floppy to r/h panel in thunar for shortcut.
Certainly its driver was not installed.
Floppy drive is handled in /etc/fstab. I know because I checked that first.
2nd Edit: Well. The files stay in there when I eject the floppy in /mnt/floppy. I tried configuring a thunar custom action with the
udisks --unmount /dev/fd0
command but that did not help. The only way for them to go away is with a reboot with floppy disk pulled. I am still gonna have to trouble shoot that one so that the folder empties when disk is pulled out.
