I'm using LXDE 0.5.0-4ubuntu4, and when I'm logged in to an LXDE desktop session, my USB drive won't automount upon plugin. If I unplug, log out, log in to a regular Ubuntu desktop session, and plug back in, it automounts just fine. But LXDE is my preferred GUI shell, and logging out is rarely feasible...
I went into PCManFM's Edit, Preferences menu, and under Volume Management I found that the "Mount removable media automatically when they are inserted" was already checked.
I'm capable of figuring out how to mount a drive from /dev/sdwhatever, but both
fdisk -l and gparted say my only drive is /dev/nvem0n1p1, which is my primary drive.
ls /dev/sd* does show a /dev/sda, but I'm not quite sure what that is.

That SanDisk entry, that's my device.

How can I address this problem? What other diagnostic info can I gather?
