Since upgrading to 7.10, my USB drives and SD cards no longer automount. On
connect, i get the message:
Cannot mount volume.
Unable to mount the volume
mount: wong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing
codepage or helper progra, or other error. In some cases useful info is
found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
So, dmesg says:
[682445.710000] sdb: Mode Sense: 03 00 00 00
[682445.710000] sdb: assuming drive cache: write through

[682445.992000] FAT: Unrecognized mount option "usefree" or missing value
What seems to be the problem here, and how do i remedy it? I can manually
mount the volumes however I cannot chown or chmod them effectively
afterwards, even though they appear to be mounted rw.
Thanks for any help,
