[SOLVED] Cannot Mount USB Stick

This is a new development with my PC on Crunchbang - USB is not seen in File Manager.  I can use same USB stick in my netbook on Crunchbang with no problems.  Where do I begin?  I have been reading through other posts, have not found a solution as of yet.

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Cannot Mount USB Stick

first try mounting the USB manually. open a terminal and type this:

sudo blkid

that will give you a list of connected drives. you should see the USB-drive listed there. at the beginning of the line it says something like /dev/sdb1. that is the info you need.
now, (using /dev/sdb1 as an example) type this:

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usb/

that should mount the usb-drive at /media/usb. if you don't get an error or whatever, try to see if it worked by typing

cd /media/usb

are your files there? it worked. are they not? tell us the error-message you got.

fwiw, i am still struggling with Thunar (the filemanager) automounting. all my checkboxes are on (Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Configure the management of removable drives. check the boxes there), but still no luck.

Re: [SOLVED] Cannot Mount USB Stick

What release, what branch? New November point release, no upgrades?

edit: never mind...

rhowaldt, I think you mean USB 3.0?

Re: [SOLVED] Cannot Mount USB Stick

^ nope, pretty sure i read usb2.0. however, my memory is foggy, this might have something to do with my ipod not mounting on usb2.0 properly. ahhh forget it, i forgot.
