Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I run Ubuntu 12.04 x64. I have a FAT32 USB disk with valuable data on it but it does not mount.

I can see and access it when I plug it in to a Windows machine, but not on Ubuntu. I tried all kind of ways to mount it, no result so far. I was assuming it would show up automatically once connected.

What to do ?

Update: lsusb output (copied from comment)

Update: Drive is now attached (copied from comment)


The drive just 'spontaneously' came up. I don't know why. There is now an extra line in lsusb

doesn't look nice, but I don't seem to be able to add line breaks –  Alexander Jun 20 '12 at 22:10
