Tip: Solving the problem of automatic mounting of USB drives in Debian Squeeze

Good day dear readers, once again, after another little absence, I take this space to share with you a little tip that is really useful for users of Debian Squeeze.

Turns out, though Debian Squeeze is a distribution very solid, stable and interesting, I had problems mounting USB drives, an error quite sensible, but browsing the net I was lucky to find a solution to the problem.

When we try to automatically mount a USB drive in Debian Squeeze we get the following error message:

When you run the command that tells us the error message on a terminal we get:

An unsatisfactory answer, however, we are lucky because we pragmart recommended the following steps to solve this problem:

1) Open a terminal (Menu>Accessories>Terminal) and we log in as root, by typing:
We asked our root password, the digits and go to the next step.

2) Edit the text file /etc/fstab ,To do this in the terminal write the following:
gedit /etc/fstab
Note:We can also use nano, vim, kedit or any text editor according to preference.

By doing so, opens a text file as follows:

3) Locate the line that causes the problem and delete the text file, in my case:

/dev/sdb1       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
Note: To choose the error line should look good in the error message, I showed at the beginning, in my case read: "….. bad superblock on /dev/sdb1" As you get it in this message, choose the line that you must delete the text file fstab

After clearing the error line, the file is as follows:

Save the changes, close the gedit and ready, from now we will have no problem with automatic mounting of our USB drives:

Thank you very much for your attention, dear readers see you later.
