    I am running Ubuntueee on my Netbook.
    Last evening I was able to use my thumb drives with no problem.
    Tonight it will not access the thumb drives...giving me the following error message: Cannot mount volume. Unable to mount the volume. mount: must be superuser to use mount.
    How do I go about getting this thing to recognize my thumb drive???
    (am relearning Linux after many years ago trying to learn it)
    Thanks guys....

    Indy:
    Tried your suggestions and the ones on the link. Intermittent mount and no-mount.
    Decided to reinstall Ubuntu. No big deal as I had it on my thumb drive.
    Everything seems to be going ok for now.
    Thank you Sir....trying to learn this again. Love this version of Linux.

    sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 [replace this with directory you wish to mount to]
