Check your automount settings under 'removable drives and media' in the
Settings Manager.

I checked these setting and the automount option was checked.  I figured
out how the automount broke in the first place.  I was trying to format a
microSD card with the "mkdosfs -F 32 -v /dev/sdb" command.  I think that
broke devices assigned to /dev/sdb (USB drives).

Anyway, I was having some errors on boot and suspend so I thought I would
just do fresh install.  Did so and USB drives are mounting again.
