I had the same problem after adding

"fork=netatalk" to the etc/fstab/

If You have this entry, try removing it. My zip and floppy work fine
without the "Fork=netatalk" line - but the CD does not. From the CD only
stuffit archives are read correctly.

But maybe at least You can make Your floppy working.

Good luck
