"Not Authorized" to mount external USB drive or Windows filesystem from Debian
I have two USB sticks and a 1TB USB drive attached to my computer (dual boot Debian stable/Windows 7
When I open pcmanfm from my standard user account, I see in the left panel
4.0 GB Filesystem (USB stick, I can access)
427 GB Filesystem (Windows Filesystem, I can't access)
Tenso 32 GB (USB stick, I can access)
Elements (1TB external HDD, I can't access)
System Reserved (I don't know what this is, but I can't access it)
I see it as a standard user, but cannot access it. As root, I can't even see it on pcmanfm.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

pcmanfm could read my directories once I manually mounted the drive
