I'm trying to automount my drive using the following command in startup applications:

/usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/sdd1

However, MySQL fails to start when I mount the disk. On the contrary, if I click on the drive via the GUI, MySQL will load normally.

What is going on here? Why won't MySQL recognize the mounted drive when mounted with the command I provided?

@Mitch I tried that, and all of the drives have the automount turned on but they still don't mount when I start-up. Any suggestions? – Jester87 Jul 20 '13 at 20:20
Try This, see if it works. – Mitch Jul 20 '13 at 20:43
