I thought I had this one covered, but it just started happening again.

I've checked all the settings, and they didn't change.  However,
between yesterday and today, my USB drive automounts no longer work.,
not even with 'thunar --daemon' running in the background.

The only way to get them recognized is to run thunar explicitly and
click on the flash drive.

If I run thunar --daemon in a terminal I get these errors when I try
to mount the drive:

admar at admar-HPz640:~ $ thunar --daemon
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unknown block device type.
thunar-volman: Could not detect the volume corresponding to the device.

I thought maybe it was a system problem, so I rebooted, but  no, it
still won't mount.

However, I do see this:

admar at admar-HPz640:~ $ lsusb

admar at admar-HPz640:~ $ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb
[sudo] password for admar:

Disk /dev/sdb: 4110 MB, 4110227968 bytes

Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

/dev/sdb1            2048     8027788     4012870+  83  Linux

So it's definitely there and something is recognizing it, even if not
the volume manager.

What am I missing?

Thanks.
