First off... Welcome!

You will find very good advice in these forums and we all want you to stick with Ubuntu as with any operating system you will have issues but you won't always find a community to support you.

Need a bit more information to assist.


Hardware Details (What model computer, sound card, video card etc.) Output of "lspci" is pretty helpful
Error messages (output from logs always helps)


Looking forward to your reply.

Hank

No, you shouldn't need to mount any of those devices from the command line. They should automount without any problem or any authorisation error when you click on the entry in the Places sidebar as your screenshot shows you have done. Something has gone wrong with your installation.

I see you have extensively modified the theming. Have you also installed any apps to do with automounting or mounting USB devices? Some of these interfere with the perfectly adequate automounting functionality built into the gnome desktop.

Or - with all your other problems, I wonder if your installation medium was faulty. Did you check the md5sum of the downloaded ISO? If you used a CD, did you burn this at slow speed? Also - if you try booting with the CD and tap the spacebar as soon as the two small icons appear, you get the old live CD text menu. You can do a CD integrity check from that - third option if I remember correctly.
