Cannot see contents of floppy on Mandrake 8.1.

When I click on the Floppy icon all I get is this message below (after the first time), but I just want to copy my files onto the Linux so I can work on my assignment. I need help ASAP so I can compile it.

"Could not mount device.
The reported errror was:

mount: /dev/fd0 already mounted or /mnt/floppy busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/fd0 is already mounted on /mnt/floppy"

Any idea why I can't get to them?
Any help will be much appreciated :)

Jon.
