Interesting... Indeed if I manually try to mount the drive as root to a
specific mount point, it does work.

So it seems it's automount that does not work. Neither does attempting
to mount the drive manually from a Nautilus window (right-click the "USB
Drive" icon and selecting "Mount Volume", or just double-clicking it).
All i get is an error window saying "Unable to mount drive".

What's strange is that automounting my 8GB drive of the same brand (as
well as an 8GB drive of a different brand) _does_ work. I don't have to
be root and mount it to a specific point manually to get to it.

What could be causing that...?

Cheers,

Chris
