Here's a drill for you.

1)  sudo  ls -la  /dev/disk/by-uuid/

you should see a list of all your disks by UUID

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  11 May  1 08:44 
006272c6-2ca3-4f19-9c50-ca9a05e228f5 -> ../../sdb10
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  10 May  1 08:44 
04379778-aac8-44f1-900a-6ff77e514167 -> ../../sdc5
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  10 May  1 08:44 
0d790aa4-c249-41de-be94-ba435bfb0d88 -> ../../sda8

2) Find the disk with the UUID you are trying to mount.

3)  Make up the entry in fstab of:

#Billie0W was on /dev/sda8 at boot  (example here)
UUID=0d790aa4-c249-41de-be94-ba435bfb0d88 /Billie0W     ext2    
defaults        0       2

You must have a mount point in your root directory for Billie0W so:

4)  sudo  mkdir /Billie0W

5) Then try to:     mount  Billie0W

It either mounts or should tell you why.
