Greetings Linux Experts!
I am having serious troubles with mounting my USB pen drive correctly.
I am running Fedora Core 4 with Gnome 2.12.
After plugging in the USB drive and clicking the "Computer" icon on the desktop the drive appears as GENERIC USB FLASH DISK. However, when I double click it to view the files I get the following error message:
mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/usbdisk5 busy
I have been searching numerous forums (including this one) and tried numerous solutions but I still havn't found a solution for my problem. The result of my experimentating is that in the /media/ directory there is now 6 directories: usbdisk, usbdisk1, usbdisk2, usbdisk3, usbdisk4, usbdisk5 where the actual content of the USB-drive is shown in /media/usbdisk5.
EDIT: I just found out that every time I plug in the USB drive a new directory appears in the /media/directory with the name usbdisk+1 (that is the number of usbdisk is increased by one each time)
I want to clean up the /media driectory and I want to be able to reach the drive from the Computer browser.
I have tried modifying /etc/mtab and /etc/fstab back and forth but no luck. I need som help here. And please... keep it on an elemental level since I am rather new to Linux.
