No problem--Nothing to be sorry for :)
It's really simple to use & saves forum / server space and makes it easier to navigate through the thread.

OK, first let's backup your current fstab (just in case):
Code:
sudo cp -v /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak

now create the mountpoint:
Code:
sudo mkdir /media/storage

now open fstab for editing:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

and add a 2 NEW lines at the bottom that read:-
Code:
# Added by Herbert to automount /dev/sdb1
UUID=292E-1DFD /media/storage vfat defaults,user,exec,uid=1000,gid=100,umask=000 0 0

SAVE the file.

Back in the terminal, run:
Code:
sudo mount -a

if there were no errors, reboot to test.
(if it's now automounted, check you can write to it)

if there WERE errors from that last command, DO NOT reboot .. instead, write down the error so you can post it here .. then rerun:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

and comment out the last line .. so those 2 lines you addded earlier now read:-
Code:
# Added by Herbert to automount /dev/sdb1
# UUID=292E-1DFD /media/storage vfat defaults,user,exec,uid=1000,gid=100,umask=000 0 0

SAVE the file.

Now post the error here.

PCNetSpec -

I'm sure I posted a reply to yours of Mon Oct 28, 2013 6:58 am, but it seems to have disappeared.

As I recall, there were, among the among the results, a couple of lines that said that a file having to do with automount "does not exist".

I decided, out of curiosity to see if the same problem would occur with a considerably older, 32-bit computer that had 2 hard drives, so I installed the 32-bit version of Peppermint 4 on it & then, via the menu item "disks", used the disk utility to edit the second hard drive so that it would mount automatically. Unlike what happened with my 64-bit computer, IT WORKED.

The 64-bit computer however still defies all our efforts to to get its second hard drive to mount automatically.

You've obviously put a lot of effort into trying to help, for which I'm grateful, but I've decided that I'd better give up.

PCNetSpec,

Thanks again, but I have to also apologise to everybody for something I said in my Mon Oct 28, 2013 11:10 pm posting.

I said that I'd found that automount worked in my old HP a220n computer when running Peppermint. That has turned out to be misleading because soon after that, automount stopped working!

Well I must admit this problem is rather fascinating. My current hard drive that I'm using to send this has Zorin 6.4 (core) on it, so I'll take it out and replace it with a hard drive that has the 64-bit Peppermint 4 on it. It shouldn't take long. I'll post when it's ready.

PCNetSpec,

64-bit Peppermint 4 is now installed on the first hard drive. The computer is a former Royal Canadian Mounted Police (sold off as surplus) & is an HP Compaq dc7800p.

The second hard drive (formatted to ext 4) is present and is recognised, but won't mount automatically.

OK, let's start again ..

can you open a terminal and post the output from these commands:
Code:
sudo fdisk -l

and
Code:
sudo blkid

can you also make sure the partition(s) you want mounted at boot are mounted, then send the output from:
Code:
mount

OK, via cut & paste (with apologies for being still baffled by the thingy called pastebin) here they are -

$ sudo fdisk -1
[sudo] password for herb:
fdisk: invalid option -- '1'
Usage:
fdisk [options] <disk> change partition table
fdisk [options] -l <disk> list partition table(s)
fdisk -s <partition> give partition size(s) in blocks

Options:
-b <size> sector size (512, 1024, 2048 or 4096)
-c[=<mode>] compatible mode: 'dos' or 'nondos' (default)
-h print this help text
-u[=<unit>] display units: 'cylinders' or 'sectors' (default)

-v print program version
-C <number> specify the number of cylinders
-H <number> specify the number of heads
-S <number> specify the number of sectors per track

Now the second one -

$ sudo blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="05fa7510-d602-412f-822a-313d9f404987" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda5: UUID="9693839c-087d-4cae-87f3-46081c0f0157" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="New Volume" UUID="676fb680-b808-4b1e-8ea2-13ca30cd37b8" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdb5: UUID="4684b86a-b8f6-4cb0-8c21-27a5ca2cc015" TYPE="swap"

and the third one -

$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
none on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs (rw)
none on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755)
none on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880)
none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
none on /run/user type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=104857600,mode=0755)
