Hey, I am trying to mount my hd on ubuntu by I receive this message "No possible mount location - Not Authorized".

It happened after some upgrades on system, and the sound stoped too.

here is my fstab file:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=34a80206-2142-427e-9c43-52aabbd28d81 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID="F0DE78CDDE788D9A" /media/sda2 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=pt_BR.UTF-8 0   0


In this case its sda2 which cant me mounted.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Try scrapping the locale option and see if it mounts. Also, the UUID format doesn't look right to me.
