my system does not mount USB sticks anymore.
These are my observations:
USB devices (keyboard, printer, Android devices , etc.) are working
using lsusb the USB sticks become detected
gparted finds the partition
NTFS exFAT and FAT32 file systems are affected. NTFS not checked.
I “repaired” both test USB sticks with windows, both working there properly
thunar has freezes for 10-15 sec. when I put in an USB stick. The freeze occurs always on startup directly after the desktop came up. The background image loads after the 15 sec. Also the system does not allow any input during this time
I started thunar via console to check any messages during the freeze, but it stays empty.
Would be nice if someone could help searching. I’ve no clue even where to look at.
Thank you for the answer. I’ve seen this ntfs topic during my own research, but assumed that in my case this can not be the issue. Because on stick uses fat. Additionally I rechecked that saw that my second USB stick is using exfat instead of ntfs. I corrected my post.
Regarding the lower 4 entries. There is a NAS but I’ve trouble with the NFS mount since a long time. So I’m experimenting a little. A complete different topic.
BUT. I found out something new. Sometimes I using Krusader. Krusader can “see” the plugged USB drives and mounting them instantly. Then they appearing in thunar as well. Thunar has these still these freezes after opening.
