    With the device plugged in, open a terminal and try this (as regular user)

    Code:
    udisks --mount /dev/sdb1
    Any errors? If not, navigate to /media... with nautilus file manager. Report back.

    @All-Thanks for the replies

    In ordinary user mode as well as super user mode output is as follows,something seems to be inhibiting the mounting of the drive :-(

    :~> udisks --mount /dev/sdb1
    Mount failed: Daemon is inhibited

    That result is still progress, as it shows it could be a policy issue. Have a look at /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy


    Code:
    cat cat /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy
    and check out this section

    Code:
    <action id="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable">
        <description>Mount file systems from removable drives.</description>
        <message>System policy prevents mounting removable media</message>
        <defaults>
          <allow_inactive>no</allow_inactive>
          <allow_active>yes</allow_active>
        </defaults>
      </action>
    Is yours the same? It can be edited directly if necessary, or adjusted if necessary via a GUI tool (described here):

    FWIW, I note the udisks package contains a file

    /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy

    which may also play a part in your user access issues (though I don't see a section there that pertains to removable devices).

    Another useful diagnostic approach will be to get the name of the unmounted removable device from

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    (You'll need to issue as root for the above command). It may be /dev/sdb1 for example. Then type

    Code:
    udisks --show-info /dev/sdb1
    with the appropriate device name. That may show useful info for the device file in question.

    @deano_ferrari - hal.storage.policy seems tobe according to your specification :- Ref:- SUSE Paste

    I removed drive and I tried mounting again,now it says:-
    :~> udisks --mount /dev/sdb1
    Mount failed: Error mounting: mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    NOTE:-Issue occurs only with adata drive and not with the other kingston c10 Data Traveller. SUSE mounts c10 perfectly even now .But adata fails

    Adata drive which i have :- http://www.adata.com.tw/?action=prod...&cid=1&piid=11
