I followed your suggestions and if those options are marked, I also
thought that something may be wrong with the installation. I've also
read that you can edit the fstab file to fix these problems with USB
devices, so I also tried adding these lines:

/ dev / sdb / mnt / usb vfat users, exec, noauto, noatime, rw 0 0

/ dev / sda / mnt / pendrive auto rw, user, noauto 0 1

There is another option to add to fstab?

Thank you very much for the help.
