Default USB Drive
When plugging in an external usb drive (HD or stick) I can choose "open media in filemanager" (from infobox in the right of the taskbar) but when trying nothing happens. I have manually to go to root/media/usbdrive to access the files.

Also when copy files to usb I get FOR EVERY FILE a single message that the permissions cannot be kept. Can I somehow deactivate this?

Is this on 9.0 or 9.1?

I have a similar problem with my fresh installation of PCBSD 9.1 x64 on a Lenovo B560 laptop with nvidia 310M/Intel GMA HD graphics (optimus is deactivated in BIOS).

A plugged in external USB stick is not automatically mounted (manually checking for /media/usbdrive as Vermilion did turns up nothing).
Until now I only tested a few FAT32 formatted sticks (which are perfectly automounted by my PCBSD 9.0 x64 desktop computer installation).

In PCBSD 9.1 on my Lenovo I have to manually mount (as root) with

Code:
mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usb

Oh, I see... This is a KDE thread, sorry.

My USB problem occurs in each of the installed WM's (KDE, LXDE, Gnome).

I use PC-BSD 9.1, still no idea?

I also have another USB-drive (formatted with FAT32) and I am not able to change permissions. I could create new files but could not save them!?

Now I installed updates but still no changes.

I have the same problem, I have tried two external USB hard disks, one WD and the other HP. Both are formatted ext4.
The machine is a Thinkpad T400, clean install of PC-BSD with just LXDE and XFCE installed.

With the device plugged in before boot:

Mount tray tool does not show it.

It does appear in left pane of file manager (PCManFM) but cannot be mounted (message: mount: /dev/da0s1: Operation not supported by device)

Code:
# dmesg |grep da0
...
(da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): got CAM status 0x4
(da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): fatal error, failed to attach to device

da0: 953837MB (1953458176 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 121597C)
In terminal:
Code:
# mount -t ext4 /dev/da0s1 /usr/home/wjc721/usbdisk
mount: /dev/da0s1: Operation not supported by device

Plugging device in after boot

The mount tray tool does not detect the device

It does not appear in the left pane of the file manager

Code:
cat /var/log/messages

All of the above was with the WD. The HP behaves similarly. Here are messages after plugging into the booted machine:

This is very frustrating!

But otherwise Kris, Dru and the rest of the PCBSD team, PCBSD is awesome and when these little issues are ironed out (nVidea included) - wow.

Sorry I just realised that this is a KDE thread - I searched for "mount usb" - but it seems that the problem occurs across DEs.

I also have a failure to automount a USB drive. Mainly Gnome is my DE, but the tray app fails to detect USB.
