    Re: DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed:An operation is already pen

    Maybe this works

    Ok, I found the solution right after I posted this.
    I deleted /media/.hal-mtab now everything is working properly.

    go to that dir
    you can to ls -a to see the hidden files
    type sudo rm .hal-mtab

    One solution to this problem is to simply open Gparted (also called partition editor, under System -> Administration)

    That caused the usb drive and its files to re-appear in Nautilus.

    deleting /media/.hal-mtab didnt' work for me

    I had a similar issue with a USB pen drive.

    I deleted the /media/.hal-mtab.lock file but it had no effect.

    However, this is what I did to resolve it:

    1. Launched 'gconf-editor' and browsed to 'apps / nautilus / preferences'
    - unchecked 'media_automount'
    - unchecked 'media_automount_open'

    2. Launched GParted to find the id of the location of the device (/dev/sdf1)

    3. ran
    Code:
    sudo mount -t ext3 -o rw,users /dev/sdf1 /media/usb-backup
    nb this took up to one hour to complete

    After that the device was available as normal. I unmounted with:
    Code:
    sudo umount /media/usb-backup
    and removed the device

    Then re-enabled the Nautilus preferences unset in step 1.

    Plugged in the device again and it was found as normal.

    Happened to me on lucid with a cd drive. Drive wouldn't mount unless there was a disk in it at boot. I disabled those two options in gconf-editor, restarted with the drive bay empty (didn't test with the bay full) and reenabled them; success. Thanks, Mash909!

    I just had that error on a signature mini usb hard drive and thought it might have to do with the updates I installed last night. (first time I plugged it in since the updates).

    I opened gconf-editor while the drive was still plugged in and it mounted on it's own before I could browse to apps/nautilus/preferences.

    So it had something to do with just starting the gconf-editor in my case.

    Strange
