I've install Ubuntu 12.10 and now I can't mount any partitions.
I get the same error with drives:
Adding read ACL for uid 1000 to /media/proach failed: Operation not supported

I have one word for this 'bug': fun. :) I saw exactly the same error message today, and the solution is...
sudo mkdir /media/$USER sudo chown $USER:$USER /media/$USER
(thank jasmines for the tipp!)
I know, fun, but that was the solution for me! Ubuntu wants to use a non-existent directory for the mount target, and doesn't create it before attempting the mounting operation!
Just follow these instructions:
sudo blkid sudo -H gedit /etc/fstab
and fill information= in the appropriate pattern. For example, mine was:
UUID=445F-4D4E /home/str007/kortele vfat errors=remount-ro 0 1
My file now looks like this
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda2 during installation UUID=69ede51f-a51e-4493-9c86-e553f952b3e6 / ext2 errors=remount-ro 0 1 UUID=445F-4D4E /home/str007/kortele vfat errors=remount-ro 0 1
As @jasmines points out it's a known bug. The ACL change is not really needed to mount, but it's attempted if the directory doesn't exist.
I had the same problem with both a usb device and my primary (windows) partition. I managed to mount my windows partition by opening the "disks" application, selecting my primary partition, clicking "more actions..." (just below partition) >> "edit mount options" >> and beside "Identify as" I selected
This allow me to mount my windows partition but it didn’t work for my usb device
The last answer make a solution in some cases...
I just found a solution 100% effective. Follow my instructions:
1) In a console write that: $ sudo gedit /etc/fstab
2) Enter your admin password
3) In the gedit Editor, go to the end of the file and write your data with this structure: #Hard Drive n1 the next line auto-mont the partition sda2 in the /media directory /dev/sda2 /media/myHardDrive ntfs defaults 00 #For CD/DVD the next line auto-mont the CD/DVD in /media dictory with the type iso966 /dev/sr0 /media/CD-DVD iso966
4)save the current text and close de gedit editor.
If all of this works, when you insert a DVD, Hard Drive or any device, they will auto-mount in the directory that you put in the /etc/fstab file.
Of course, if you are any question or error in the steps, i will write as soon i can.
