The "settings of media" are the contents of your: "/etc/fstab" file.

Try changing the device for the floppy to: "/dev/fd0H1440" (presuming 
that you have a 1.44 Meg 3.5 inch floppy, otherwise you will need a 
different device).  So you line in fstab would be:

/dev/fd0H1440  /media/floppy  auto  rw,users,noauto,umask=0  0 0

or something like that.
