    Can not Mount usb on debian

    Hey guys, I have hust installed Debian but I have a problem.

    Whenever I plug in a usb or external HD I take a pop up message that says
    Code:
    Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,        missing codepage or helper program, or other error        In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try        dmesg | tail  or so Debian
    What can I do?

    Did you install vis usb? If so you might need to edit /etc/fstab and comment out the usb drive. First open a root terminal, then run this:
    Code:
    nano /etc/fstab
    Find a line that looks similar to this:
    Code:
    /dev/sdb1       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    Add # at the beginning so it looks like this:
    Code:
    #/dev/sdb1       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    Press CTRL+X then y to save and then reboot. Make sure you edit the right line though, post the /etc/fstab here if you are unsure.
