guess this is a little faster than you expected, but I had this handy
First of all linux will only have issues seeing NTFS (which you can solve anyway), however, as far as I know, pen drives can only be formatted in FAT by windows, so Linux should have no problems in reading this.
Here's an article I saved 'cos it worked well for me.
Sorry if I don t post the name of the author, but I didn't save it.
If you re reading this, thx man, please add you name to the post

Sorry for the "_". Since space characters get somehow messed up, I am using "_" to represent a space character.
and look there for the parameter:
I am sure it's set to yes (HOTPLUG_USE_SUBFS=yes)
You *need* to set it to no
Reboot your system (the watch and the stick shall not be plugged-in, although it does not hurt if they are. It's just for testing)
After the system is up and running, plug-in your devices.
whether the devices are recognized as attached or not.
Check with lsmod if the modules
If not load them manually
Mount now your devices
If this works, cd into /media/usb-stick and /media/watch and ls
to see if you can see the contens (of course you need to have some files
on those devices.)
If everything works you can delete the automatically created directories under /media
etc. since you do not need them anymore.
