How do I set the /etc/fstab withythe proper options? also I didnt
mount the sdb1 with option of media, as it tries to mount with that?,
I also did in a terminal window sudo mount /dev/sdb1/, and posting my
command is only when the usb icon is shown when the usb drive is
switched on a window shows how to mount the partition and I select in
a window, then denies me to mount?
