when I typed "sudo udevmonitor -e | tee udev.log", nothing happened, so udev.log is empty.

Can anyone help me with this? I've asked in at least 4 different places that I'm supposed to be able to get answers. It's been 8 months now since it stopped working.

Still doesn't work. I ran fsck and it modified the FAT partition a little, which caused it to show up in Computer as a "black drive" but it sill won't mount if I click on it. It gives me error message "Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume" and "DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

Every partition mounts just fine if I do it manually. Why won't the computer recognize them automatically?

It seems that this was a combination of the "usefree" option and the FSINFO sector. It appears to be fixed now.
