Normally transferring via floppy should not give you problems at all.
Maybe you used directcd to copy the file to cdrom, and didn't finish the CD.
In that case linux would not be able to read the cd, since the session wasn't
finished yet. So if you copy files to cd, the best approach is to write them the
regular way, via nero or easy cd creator.
Next time you ask a question, try to be more specific. You described your
problem correctly, but you didn't go into enough detail into how you tried to copy
the files. Fuzzy questions lead to fuzzy answers.
Have a nice day,
