== 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?
 
 
EDIT: The same applies to [[USB Storage Devices#Auto-mounting with udev and systemd]] too.
