Unable to mount using udisks, but mount is working

I am using Debian 6.0. When I try to mount a drive (USB) in GNOME or using udisks, I end up with following error message:

Mount failed: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
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
And the when executing
dmesg | tail
[ 2123.409726] UDF-fs: No VRS found
[ 2123.409733] UDF-fs: Rescanning with blocksize 2048
[ 2123.433416] UDF-fs: No VRS found

[ 2123.518921] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
[ 2160.410099] UDF-fs: No VRS found
[ 2160.410104] UDF-fs: Rescanning with blocksize 2048

[ 2160.434359] UDF-fs: No partition found (1)
[ 2160.479482] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
Seems like it is trying to mount a CD.

But I am able to mount the same using
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
I tried the same with different filesystem and getting same message form udisks.

I am able mount other hard disk partition using udisks:
sudo udisks --mount /dev/sda1
Help me to mount drives using udisks. I don't know how I can configure udisks.
Sorry for my bad English.

Sorry friends, I didn't see /etc/fstab file. It had entries:
/dev/sdb1       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
Which was creating the problem and also it is coming default in Debian Live GNOME install.
