sorry, but I don't have any idea, but I had the same problem without
adding any device.
Non of my usb devices could be mounted - neither manually nor
automatically - by anyone.
reading your mail I tried it again and - what a surprise! It works, my
USB-stick is mounted!
First I had the same error:
could not find /dev/sdX in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Now it works again. But I haven't added anyting to my fstab.
I really would like to know what happend! Seems to me like good old MS
times - the system does what it wants...
Maybe anyone here can explain how an usb device is mounted
(automatically and manually), so I will understand what happend...
