You are not privileged to mount the volume


Hi!

I use FC5 and since today I have problems to mount different USB-sticks that worked fine until now. When I stick them in, I get the message:
Quote:
Cannot mount volume
You are not privileged to mount the volume
it first happened with one, and now with all my sticks. This drives me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.

thanks.

Now with the same USB-sticks I get automatically an errormessage (see 1st post) when I stick the usb-Stick in the computer. When I try to mount it as root, it fails too.
