USB drive using different partitions (usb key thumb drive)


I editted my /etc/fstab file to include the following line:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbkey auto defaults,noauto,user 0 0

It works most of the time however sometimes when I mount the usbkey it fails, when I look at the hardware browser, the usbkey now appears at a different partition (sda1,sdc1, etc.). So I have to edit the fstab file to that new partition. Why is it doing this? How do I avoid this problem and lock it to one partition? Thanks!
