Re: USB thumb drive questio

Make sure the automounter daemon is running in the services gui.  Start and stop that service and see if it allows it to mount.  

Can you post the output of the 'mount' command?  Are you running SELinux?  Otherwise I am thinking that there may be something specific to tell it to do in a 64 bit environment, mount-wise, like with regards to block size for example. 

Also try
ps -ef | grep usb 

to see what else may be interfering, usb-wise.  No brainer, but I am assuming you have no other devices plugged in at the moment. 

Also, is this the only usb device that has a problem?  Do you have another usb device to try, preferably a usb hard drive or another thumbdrive just to see what happens?

It might be simpler to run dmesg after inserting the device, or "tail
-f /var/log/messages" before inserting it, and see what (if any)
device file is assigned.
