7 Does udisks see it? Have you tried plugging it in, while keeping an eye on
8 the output of:
10 $ udisksctl monitor
12 udisks will identify the device being plugged in, the formatted block device
13 on it, and finally any partitions on the fs, in consequent sections in its
14 output.

26 I use Plasma's DN, udisks, pmount and even manual mount as root occasionally,
27 but have not come across this problem yet.
29 However, I do not use DN's automounting.

38 Perhaps it is stored in some akonadi entry, or some .qmcl setting. In the
39 first instance I suggest you right click on the Device Notifier in the Plasma
40 tool tray, then select 'Configure Removable Devices' and un-tick:
42 - Only automatically mount removable media that has been mounted before
44 - Enable automatic mounting of removable media
46 This will hopefully flush out any cached USB drive details. If you need these
47 settings you can reset them later on.
