Mint 8 doesnt automount usb drive

Postby Petoooo on Sat Jan 02, 2010 7:02 pm

Hello, 2 days ago, it stopped to automount my usb drive(s). However, I can mount it through terminal. I dont know where is the problem, but i think linux sees usb drive. Here is lsusb (when usb drive plugged)

u see, my usb drive is a-data ...but it doesnt automount. I added this line to fstab: /dev/sdb1 /media/usbdrive vfat defaults,noauto,owner,rw,uid=peto,gid=peto 0 , after this i can mount it through sudo mount /media/usbdrive and unmount with sudo umount /media/usbdrive . But this is pretty slow :( . Its interesting that usb mouse is detected clearly.. Can u tell me where is the problem? And how can I fix it? (btw I have 4 usb slots, 1 is occupied by mouse)
Ps: usb is recognized in my sisters pc (windows xp). Help, please! :(
