When I changed to Jaunty, the USB memory sticks are not mountable. I try to mount them, and the mount fails. They are seen by lsusb, which reports:
$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 03f0:3207 Hewlett-Packard
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 054c:0243 Sony Corp. MicroVault Flash Drive
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 07cc:0500 Carry Computer Eng., Co., Ltd Mass Storage
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04a9:1709 Canon, Inc. PIXMA MP150 Scanner
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0660 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Device 006 and 005 are obviously the sticks I want to mount, but I can't seem to mount them. The is the automount for USB sticks gone?

What is the output of:


dmesg | tail -n10

when you plug one of the devices in?

Is anyone else experiencing issues with mounting USB drives? I wish to nuke my Windows partition entirely and move to using Ubuntu as my sole OS, but I kinda need my USB thumb drives to work.

Im having sort of the same problem. Sometimes it wants to, other times not

My biggest issue right now, is that It does not want to mount a storage partition (not root or home or anything).

so, yes... I know your issue. Just dont have a fix unfortunately.
