This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

To the close voters: This seems like a perfectly reasonable question to me. –  Scott Severance Nov 9 '12 at 3:41
It is because 12.10 uses udisks2, as explained by Florian Diesch here: askubuntu.com/questions/214646/… –  user76204 Nov 9 '12 at 11:36
IMHO this is not duplicate of linked Q's. oco asks for the rationale behind the change - not how to circumvent it or if it is a bug. If a close reason then askubuntu.com/faq#dontask should be used as the issue quickly could become opinion based. I.e.: igurublog.wordpress.com/2012/03/11/… –  Morpfh Nov 23 '12 at 6:06
