I installed gOS 3.1 a few days ago. When I plug in my pen drive it cannot mount the device due to an error "Invalid mount option". When I sudo from the terminal and mount it manually it mounts. I can then access the drive by double clicking the icon but then I cannot edit the files in there. I don't have write option. I again have to work from the terminal as root to copy paste files in the pen drive. Can someone be very specific as to how I can solve this problem.
I read somewhere in the net that FAT32 doesn't have the ability to retain user permission information. But that's not a valid answer as almost 99% of the pen drives are in the FAT32 format.
I also read that I have to edit the /etc/fstab file somehow. But I don't understand the code and it would be helpful if u could be very specific. For example, I don't understand sda, sdb and stuff like that and how to understand which one refers to my pen drive.
Thanks in advance. I hope anyone can solve this, my friends are killing me with their mocking cause I can't make this work.
Here is my /etc/fstab file if that is of any help to you:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

Do I need to change it in anyway?
