Everytime, when I do a fresh installation of Debian, I come across the issue of mounting USB drives. Since all the USB drives I connect are of NTFS partition, spends time on searching issues related to NTFS and finally sorts out the issue, which has nothing to do with NTFS.

The error is caused by an entry in the “/etc/fstab” file, which contains the configurations for mounding drives. Since I use Pen drives for installation, an entry is created for the device during installation, detected as “/dev/sdb1”, which is the second disk after the internal hard disk.

The first partition of all usb devices plugged in first will be detected as “sdb1”, and the entry in “fstab” file prevents mounting it. To get rid of the issue, just delete the line starting with “/dev/sdb1” in the “fstab” file.

Today, my uncle and family arrived at our home from Mumbai. They are here for a tour to a few places like Munnar, Thekkady, Kochi, etc. Everyone except me and my father are going with them and hence we will only be there at home for about a week. My uncle bought me a pendrive, of 1GB. He has offered me one earlier and last time when he came, he forgot about it. I had thought earlier that a pen drive will be much helpful in my website development works and now, I have one.
