Welcome to LQ!

We need more information to be able to help you.

1) What distribution are you using?

2) How are you trying to mount it?

3) What error message do you get when trying to mount it?

Just in case someone else searches and comes to this thread,
it would be nice if you posted what steps you took and how
you got it mounted. Your choice, though.

Glad it's working. They're really nice to have.
