    Upgraded to 12.10 now can't mount USB drives

    Just upgraded to 12.10.
    Cannot mount any USB drives. Desperately need help before I reinstall 11.04.
    Can't Ubuntu make it simple?

    What does this error mean?

    I think they do make it simple but sorry your particular experience is somewhat negative.

    When you insert the USB sticks do you get any form of notice or icon in Unity?

    Actually I'm talking about USB hard drives. See attached screenshot above.
    I've never found upgrades to be simple! There is always some issue.

    Actually I'm now finding many other malfunctions in other apps. This is BS. Why can't an upgrade just work?
    I have Googled the problem of mounting USB drives and find it is a common complaint. The solutions are too technical for me to tackle. I need my files and computer for work. I will revert to 11.04 which I liked a lot. Maybe I'll try Mint again.

    OK, I tried Mint and found that to be just as buggy! May as well stay with the devil I know! Now I have 12.04 and that awful Unity Desktop. Where are the control buttons to minimize or close applications? Are there alternatives to Unity?
