There was no warning message - I got the nice music telling me that it 
was successful.
I tried adding 'auto' to my fstab but still no joy :-( I tried manually 
mounting it but I get an error message: No meduim found.
Strange thing is I took it to a friend's Win xp laptop and it open it no 
problem showing all my files etc.

What gives??
