I have a problem both with mounting and with unmounting my USB hard drive. This appeared when I upgraded to 12.04. Since then, when I insert the HD I get a message:
Unable to mount FreeAgent Drive
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdf1 on /media/FreeAgent Drive
So I try a
And open the file manager with the required rights. I then do my business and eject the drive.
The problem is, that when I shut down the computer then, it does not shut down. It remains on, just the window system gets shut down. Then I see a black screen with various undecipherable text going on and the computer is not responsive. I have to shut it down manually.
Another problem is when I turn on the computer. Before the window system is turned on, I get a message which goes approximately something like this:
media/FreeAgent Drive (my disk) is either missing or not yet available. Wait or press S to skip mounting
When I skip and do not mount the disk thereafter, I am able to shut the PC down without the before mentioned shutdown problem.
Please what should I do?
