I think it should cause an error, NO SUCH DEVICE or some such, rather than just spinning waiting for the floppy to respond when there isn''t one.'

Disposition: [DATE': 23-JUL-84 ROACH Presumably "access" means OPENFILE.  FLOPPY will print "Floppy': No floppy drive on this machine" before generating the system error "FILE WON''T OPEN".  Other operations, such as DIR {FLOPPY}* will continue to not generate an error, but instead make {FLOPPY} look like it has an empty directory so that file searches work correctly when {FLOPPY} is on the search path.]
