    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 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....

    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.
