Mounting USB Stick


Hi guys,

Normally when I try mount my USB stick, I plug it in to the computer, click the icon, type my password in and then access my data. Today though, I get the following error:

Unable to mount 4.0 GB Encrypted
DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending

Duckduckgo'd for an answer, and someone suggests mounting through the command line, which, depending on the suggestion gives either
Code:
sudo mount -t ext3 -o rw,users /dev/sdb1 /media/usb
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
or

Code:
sudo mount -o rw,users /dev/sdb1 /media/usb
mount: unknown filesystem type 'crypto_LUKS'
Thanks

Can you think of anything that has changed? Passwords?

Anway, try to boot to a live cd, apt-get any packages needed and see if you can access it that way.

Try this solution.

Sometimes being unable to mount means a partition error or device failure
