[ubuntu netbook remix] Mounting Issues
I recently had an issue with my external hard drive after I shut down my netbook without unmounting it-- it wouldn't mount. To fix this I inserted this line:
/dev/sdb1 / ntfs-3g force 0 0
Now when I'm trying to mount my MicroSD card through a MicroSD to USB adapter, it says "You are not privileged to mount this volume." and when I try to mount it in terminal:
>> sudo mount /dev/sdb1 NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sdb1' doesn't have a valid NTFS. Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
What do I do to get drives to automount again?

Well, the MicroSD card is likely a FAT32 partition. Since the /dev assignment varies between plugins and reboots, it's being assigned to /dev/sdb1, whereupon your system wants to mount it as NTFS.
Instead, mount by Label or UUID.

You should mount partition in /media/mount_point or any other location instead of /.
sudo mkdir /media/sdb1
