    A umount will fail if anything is still running that keeps the device open. Everything is supposed to be killed before you get to that stage, but sometimes something is real stubborn. The fact that you're running through fuse tells me something is not using a native interface.

    As far as the USB device: Sounds like the pen drive is using an encrypted file system. You'll be able to see it but will not be able to access the files on it (if I'm right).

    I hope I'm wrong on both accounts, but we'll see. With the computer up and running and the pen drive plugged in, open a terminal to run these commands and post their outputs:
    Code:
    user@computer ~$ su
    Enter Password for root: (Enter PW: no echo)
    
    root@computer /home/user# fdisk -l
    
    (Post Output)
    
    root@computer /home/user# cat /etc/fstab
    
    (Post Output)
    We'll see what we can come up with.

    Well, I don't see anything particularly wrong with the hard drive setup, so the shutdown issue doesn't appear to be here.

    The usb key however is.

    /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb msdos noauto 0 0
    With this, the pen drive will not auto-mount. Two possible solutions:

    1) (assuming a GUI is loaded; for some reason, I can't make auto-mount work on USB devices without it) as root, pull the pen drive and edit /etc/fstab to remove or comment out the above line. Should restore auto mounting.

    or

    2) manually mount the pen drive with sudo mount /dev/sdb1 (sudo (or execute as root) because the key user is not specified in fstab), and according to the fstab, the mount will be made to /mnt/usb.

    Let me know how this works.

    I just remembered something... if you chose the manual mount method, you'll need to edit fstab anyway or the pen drive will likely be read-only to everyone but root... edit that one line to read:

    /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb vfat noauto,rw,user,umask=0000 0 0

    These edits will allow either FAT 16 or 32 will full LFN support, users can mount the device, and all users can read and write to the drive.

    ..thanks for your help.

    actually I added this line for usb, as without it and now even with that line usb drive is not working. So I think I should modify this line....as you have told, I hope it works...
    thanks once again....

    ...not working!

    I have edited the /etc/fstab
    by writing....

    Code:
    /dev/sdb1 	     /mnt/usb		  vfat	     noauto,rw,user,umask=0000 0 0
    now on manual mounting.... its giving a warning..

    Code:
    linux-rv33:~ # sudo mount /dev/sdb1
    [mntent]: warning: no final newline at the end of /etc/fstab
    and its stops there......
    I dont know whats the problem as pendrive was working correctly in suse 10.3

    Its vfat and surely not encrypted....as it can be accessed on any other system..

    mount is a little fickle with the fstab. Re-edit and make sure the file actually ends with a blank line.
