I'm not that familiar with Ubuntu and I know there are plenty of posts on this issue, but noone on my capabilities to understand what to do. USB auto mounting of flash drive and photocamera (Nikon and Verbatin) just stopped working without any advice or changing in the OS. I tried to install usbmount but it didn't help. So I tried to use the dconf editor, but the flag where in the right position, so I did via gedit /etc/modules and added "usb_storage". No change. The things that is most upsetting is that if I restart the OS the usb drives are working, auto-mounted if I let them in during booting! Then, after some minutes they stop working even if I don't use any application. when I plug in the drive just nothing happens. I guess is a problem of Nautilus since it sometimes mount automatically, sometimes it does not mount but I can see them in Nautilus, sometimes they just sems not there. If a run lsusb in terminal, when nothing i detected I see

So you're saying that if you boot with USB drives plugged in they mount on startup but then randomly unmount? –  Amanda May 21 '13 at 2:46
