I recently upgraded my mint, I'm using 64bit version on cinnamon.
The problem is that ntfs partitions in the hard drive and flash drives and android attached phone don't show automatically in the file manager, I didn't have this problem before nor I have in my other computer which has xfce(and different hardware).
I can mount most of these normally from terminal or from Preferences->Disks but they don't show automatically and I checked from disks that automount is ON.
I plugged my flash drive and typed dmesg right after that, here is the output related to the flash drive :
[ 1739.280020] usb 1-3: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-pci [ 1739.414603] usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=1516, idProduct=1603 [ 1739.414610] usb 1-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 1739.414614] usb 1-3: Product: USB_DRIVE [ 1739.414618] usb 1-3: Manufacturer: [ 1739.414622] usb 1-3: SerialNumber: 2008111700000000000044DA [ 1739.476896] usb-storage 1-3:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected [ 1739.477074] scsi host2: usb-storage 1-3:1.0 [ 1739.477767] usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage [ 1739.485916] usbcore: registered new interface driver uas [ 1740.476773] scsi 2:0:0:0: Direct-Access USB_DRIVE 1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2 [ 1740.477483] sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0 [ 1740.478117] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] 15945728 512-byte logical blocks: (8.16 GB/7.60 GiB) [ 1740.480436] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off [ 1740.480447] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 23 00 00 00 [ 1740.484554] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] No Caching mode page found [ 1740.484566] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through [ 1741.095171] sdb: sdb1 [ 1741.097751] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
it seems detected, it's just not automounted and not shown in Nemo.
and here is the output of sudo fdisk -l :

there doesn't seem to be any problem from the output, all partitions are detected, sda would be my hard drive and sdb is the flash drive(I ran fdisk while it's attached).
last but not least, I recently replaced my motherboard and upgraded the RAMS to DDR3 , I don't recall if I did that before or after I upgraded my mint and I don't know if that's a problem, anyway here is my hardware just in case :

So what to do to solve this problem ?
