Mounting USB drives

Question

I installed my Ubuntu from a Pen Drive.

Now, my pen drive is not mounting automatically. Everytime, I reboot I have to manually mount the pen drive. Is there a way by which I can make ubuntu automatically mount my USB drives ?

Answer

Open /etc/fstab for editing, e.g.

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

    Find a line like this (usually at the end):

    /dev/sdb1  /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0  0

      and comment it out by placing a # at the beginning:

      #/dev/sdb1  /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

        You can also rename the real cdrom mount point to /media/cdrom0 if you like.
