Description of problem:

lexar flash drive will not mount, others will

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug lexar flash drive
2. wait for drive to mount

Actual results:

drive does not mount

Expected results:

mount popup on desktop

Additional info:

see attached file for tail of messages.

Most puzzling is error message:

systemd-udevd[166]: specified group 'cdrom' unknown

I have puzzled /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/80-udisks2.rules, found 3 lines about flash drives, for vendors kingston, SanDisk, HP. I tried writing a fragment for lexar, putting it in /etc/udev/rules.d/80-udisks3.rules, with no difference. The device does not mount, same messages.

That might be a bogus message from udev trying to guess drive type, i.e. look at the mtp messages around.

I'm missing some information from the log, notably partition detection. Also, can you please attach output of the `udisksctl dump` command?

I finally found the missing flash drive in question, and the problem is fixed in F20. Follows the tail of demsg after plugging in the lexar:

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:28:52 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:47:51 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
