Try reading it in a windows machine.
Does it work? If so,

mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /a will mount the floppy.

If Windows not available, Try it on another linux machine
with mount /dev/fd0 /floppy
or mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

No good (and that linux has fat filesystem support),
mount /dev/fd0H1722 /floppy or
mount /dev/fd0H1722 /mnt/floppy

Still no good.
Try dd if=/dev/fd0 of=tmpfile bs=18k count=80
Then dd if=/dev/fd0H1722 of=tmpfile bs=21k count=82

In all cases, watch for error messages.
Send me any errormessages produced.
Don't try from an Xterm. Do it from the console.
