you suffered due to the mount point you provided "/media/Property". The
system expects only a word here with no slashes(/) in it. While mounting it
just creates a folder which you provided in /media and mounts the volume
Here is the solution for it man.
Open gconf-editor in terminal:
In the left panel:
Goto: system -> Storage -> volumes
Here you will see the mount point you specified for the device.
Change it to just a single word (OR just remove it :) )
