Fails to detect USB Storage devices

My install failed to detect any USB storage devices until I loaded the scsi-generic driver:

modprobe sg

I made a file in /etc/modules-loaded.d/scsi-generic.conf so that it loads at start up.

Auto-mounting with udev

udev#Udisks clearly states:

If you want to mount removable drives please do not call 'mount' from udev rule. In case of fuse filesystems (e.g. ntfs-3g) you'll get "Transport endpoint not connected" error.

so this section is misleading (and even conflicts with the statement). I think it is better not to show this method at all, so I suggest deleting the section. Any objections?
