Post Problem mounting externals and flash drives on Ubuntu
I recently purchased an 8gb flash drive and I am having a problem mounting it without forcing it with sudo. I also seem to have the same problems when I try to mount my friends' external hard drives to copy content. I tried doing the chown and chmod commands to change my user privileges but now I get the following error when I mount:

Mount denied because setuid and setgid root ntfs-3g is insecure with the external FUSE library. Either remove the setuid/setgid bit from the binary or rebuild ntfs-3g with integrated fuse support and make itsetuid root.

I thought I did set it as root. Please I need to make it so that no matter what I plug in that it will automatically mount without all this extra work.

This is a problem with your distribution: http://ntfs-3g.org/support.html#plugandplay

Many of them support NTFS hotplug by default, e.g. Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, etc.
