For any FAT the label apply: /media/user/label For NTFS the serial: /media/user/serial For ext2/3/4 the UUID: /media/user/UUID Others (HSF+, XFS, ZFS, etc. etc.) use any unique identifier if they use any or label if they don't have. Network filesystem (SMB, NFS, etc.) use the name of the resource: //server/resource becomes: /media/user/resource ...
If you had an entry in fstab for your old Windows and you reinstalled it got a new UUID. You need to update fstab with new UUID. sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup gksudo gedit /etc/fstab Change current old UUID for your Windows to the new one. suggested settings if you do not have these: ...
Since USB is formatted with FAT32 filesystem, Can you mount it with this command? $ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt You may also refer to help for Mount in Ubuntu Documentation.

If you want GUI - sudo gnome-disks is the command to start Disks application (at least in 13.10). Select Drive, then partition, then use More actions (cogs icon) button to access 'Edit Mount Options' menu. The rest should be obvious.
I had the same problem with my two media hard drives when I was setting up my Ubuntu system. This is what I had to do to get them auto-mounted (all done from terminal): Made a backup of the fstab file - "sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak" Had to get the UUID of each drive I wanted to auto-mount "sudo blkid" Opened up the fstab file to do some editing - ...
Well, I guess here is the workaround I applied. sudo nano /etc/network/if-up.d/fstab #/bin/sh mount -a sudo chmod +x /etc/network/if-up.d/fstab I don't think it's a very elegant solution... I'm pretty much a complete linux noob so if someone has something better... I guess there are always many ways to do anything.
