[ubuntu] USB mounting FAT32 problem

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've had Ubuntu on my IBM X31 laptop for quite a while now. Its been going great, and I just upgraded to 9.10. This has gotten me thinking how I can fix some of the little problems I've been having. A couple distros back(I think 7.04) I messed with something relating to the USB. Now When I plug my hard drive in(Two partitions, one is NTFS, and the other is FAT32), the NTFS mounts just fine, but it never mounts the FAT32 partition. This also comes up in an error message(STORAGE is the name of the partiton, btw), 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 I go to terminal and type, sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb This mounts it just fine, and its all dandy from there on, until I restart the computer, then I have to do it all over again. I have to do this whenever I plug in any FAT32 device, BTW. Do you guys have any idea what I might of done, and how I can correct it? I can't remember for the life of me what I did. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! (Hardware)
