Duncan is right the UUID is set when formatting a disk an creating a 
file system, so the UUID would be specific to the floppy you insert into 
the drive. It has nothing to do with the floppy drive itself.

To get information about the hardware in your computer (including any 
drives, but also graphics cards, wireless, you name it) enter:
lspci -v

To get the UUIDs of your disks enter:

For information about mounted drives including their respective UUIDs 
you might want to use:
mount | column -t

column -t will display the output as a nice table

I hope this will help you somewhat,
