    usb key and drive won't mount in hardy

    I am pretty new to Ubuntu so i searched up some thread on this topic but don't really understand them.
    Anyways, I did a fresh install of 8.04. In gutsy, I just plug in my usb key and I can open it. In hardy, I plug it in and I try to click it open and it says

    "Invalid mount option when trying to mount volume 'UBUNTU 804'" UBUNTU 804 is the name of my usb key. how do open this usb key? It's int FAT32 format.

    Code:

    immediately _after_ plugging in the usb device?

    Re: usb key and drive won't mount in hardy

    Since the update I've also been having trouble getting my external and even my internal windows partition to mount.

    This is my output. I don't see any errors or anything like that, but I can't access the drive at all:

    All your outputs look fine to me, no errors... maybe
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    when the device is sitting plugged in?

    i get this when I do "sudo fdisk -l"

    asdf@asdf-laptop:~$ sudo fdisk -l
    [sudo] password for asdf:

    my internal hard drive's partitions mount fine. the device with 999 MB is my USB stick

    Good Luck,
