Mount options have changed from Daryna but not for FAT as far as i know so you can use the same as in Daryna - note check that you use the right "devsdxx"
I have not used FAT since the introduction of XP so I haven't mounted myself, but something like this
/dev/sdaxx /media/sdaxx vfat iocharset=utf8,umask=000 0 0

hmm I thought I wrote an answer yesterday
Anyway, here goes
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/fstab

add the line in my answer above, but with the correct designation
In this respect Elyssa is a step back as it is hard to find that out
To do that open gparted and use the /dev/sdaxx you find
Make a folder to mount it in
If you go for the /media option
Code: Select all
sudo md /media/sdaxx

After a reboot or a manual mount it will appear
