I recently acquired some used 3.5" floppy disks. I decided to keep some of them, but the rest are to be sold on, and formatted to work on Windows.
Like most modern motherboards, there is no FDD (Floppy Disk Drive) connector to connect an internal floppy disk, so I purchased a used USB floppy drive from ebay.
Plugging the device in and then inserting one of the floppy disks, mounted the drive automatically on my desktop in Ubuntu Mate.
I then ran the fdisk -l command to display the disk partitions
