    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Three entries for sda1, one of the is the root. There's your problem right there.

    The latter two should be something else. How to find what it should be you can find in devils_casper's post.
    But knowing Slack, you better try mounting as root first, and if that works as user. See if that makes a difference. I'm very interested in the result.

    So your problem is solved,since you are sure that is sda1,mount it know then,you can mount it without changing the fstab:
    make a directory called USB

    mount -t (fs_type) /dev/sda1 USB.

    the fs_type is the type of the file system for example it can be vfat for fat32 or reiserfs

    mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 USB

    Cheers.
