Then just copy and paste the UUID into your fstab. For instance in my case
sudo blkid | grep /dev/sdb1
Therefore in my fstab the line would be
carranty@carranty-desktop ~/test $ sudo blkid | grep /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb1: UUID="4f754843-a651-4329-b8b7-1b8a9f03a861" TYPE="ext3"
Note that you do not copy the quotation marks.
UUID=4f754843-a651-4329-b8b7-1b8a9f03a861 /media/sdb1 ext3 defaults 0 0
