    Thanks! I had the same problem on my Dell Inspiron 8200, and that worked.

    Re: USB devices won't automount in 10.04 Lucid

    I have no mounting of USB (auto or otherwise) and no mount of eSATA.

    I would be delighted to disable the floppy from the BIOS, but my ASUS P6X58D BIOS makes no mention of floppy anywhere.

    What do you do in this case?

    I tried the initramfs trick and the modprobe trick with no effect.

    Re: USB devices won't automount in 10.04 Lucid

    The funny thing is, it doesn't work on my laptop that i upgraded from 9.04->9.10->10.04, but everything works on my other laptop that i ran a clean 10.04 install on.

    In fact, all functionality seemed to drop with each update of the older laptop, so i'm inclined to believe that i should only run clean installs in the future.

    You're luckier than me.. I can't get a mount on boot or manually or automount. I've tried every proposed fix I've found on on Google and have spent about 6 total hours in IRC on 6 different networks trying to figure this out. Nearly ready to go back to Karmic just because this stupid little bug is bothering me so much.

    Cool Re: USB devices won't automount in 10.04 Lucid

    I have a similar problem with an umts device. After it abortes anormally on reconnect there is the same problem.
    It has to do with ehci_hcd driver.

    update: ok after much loading and unloading of stuff with no luck i threw in the towel and applied this work around suggested elsewhere in this forum.

    Open etc/modules with admin rights.

    Add the following lines and save:

    usb_storage
    usbhid

    hald is installed along with pmount and libpmount0.0, not sure if pmount stuff is needed.

    after applying the above both usb's and cd's automount and unmount and remount without issue.

    recap:
    stock install of ubuntu 10.04 on a 10yr old hp pavilion 5445 model. it has a built in floppy (yeah it's that old) but no way to disable floppy in the bios as some have suggested, floppy is last in boot order.

    usb will load and mount correctly if it is in at boot up. it will NOT automount after system has been started or if user logs off then back on.

    lsusb sees the usb flash drive and assigns the ehci_hcd to it in dmesg, however mount makes no reference of the usb at all. i do have a d-link 650+ wireless card loading the ndiswrapper in etc/modules to get the rf nic working. i've not uninstalled the ndiswrapper as some have suggested the use of the ndiswrapper is what breaks automount. ndiswrapper is listed before the above workaround in etc/modules.

    maybe it's the old 1.0 usb ports in the laptop, heck maybe it's the position of the moon.

    hope this saves a few steps, time and some effort for some folks.

    now just don't close the lid while it's running. good luck to all.
