Smile cannot mount USB stick

hi i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=5aee3da3-8b83-4f79-b185-82a1b85f750e / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=c0162b0f-c095-419a-b961-ae56b3cc4f0a none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd1 /media/cdrom2 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom.
my fstab is read only so no update.
i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.

any ideas thanks ken
