    Default Unable to mount USB drive after latest update on opensuse 11.4

    Hi,

    I did the latest update on the opensuse 11.4 other day and since then my USB drive is not mounting. initially I thought its gone because my son dropped on the floor. But then when I plugged it to Windows 7 machine it mounted then I plugged it into another Ubuntu 10.10 machine it mounted so I figured out the there is some issue in the latest update. Please help me to resolve the issue because I have all the VMs in this drive and my main laptop is with OpenSuse 11.4

    Any help is appreciated.

    Regards,

    Edit the file /etc/filesystems and add the line "ntfs" there.

    Hi guys. i also had the same problem after updates were installed on 11.4.
    I added ntfs to /etc/filesystem and now it complains about permissions.
    I tried to access it as root at it is accessdible. unfortunately non superuser is blocked from accessing my external HD.

    Thanks in advance for any clue

    I've seen a similar problem with 11.4. I have a number of usb port external memory devices, formatted with fat32 usually or sometimes ntfs. For SOME BUT NOT ALL of them, thee 11.4 machine refuses to allow a non superuser to mount them. How do you change the system permissions to allow the normal user to insert and mount a usb storage device regardless? And why would the problem arise for only some drives?

    Thanks,
    maab

    I have exactly the same problem here and its really ticking me off! I went to the trouble of resetting the permissions but they didn't stick either..... I also have a related issue where file copies to USB devices look to have completed and then the files mysteriously disappear before I get to read them off using another machine. I am pretty sick of this, I had hoped OS 11.4 would be a low maintenance operating system that I could rely on. Seems it was a foolish dream! Why is the USB stuff so ********** flunky..... grrrr!

    Sorry, pretty grumpy as its really painful having to use the superuser mode always. I have more troubles than the USB however, I can't see any of my other drives when logged in as an ordinary user. All the main filesystem is there but none of my other hard drives show up. In super user mode they all appear in Dolphin and USB devices show as they are plugged. As far as I can tell the device notifier has no knowledge of devices being plugged. This all came from a system update, I think! I had a fully functional system then a change was made that screwed it all up and I'm ********** if I can find whats wrong.
    I have already checked the etc/filesystems and that is correct, I am wondering if it is PolicyKit that is causing the issues, can anyone help me out here??

    I hope this has been reported in bugzilla :-? or it will never be corrected.
