     All efforts to enable use of file manager in user have failed.

    The hdd is mounted but file manager fails to load the files..

    The system works in root..

    Fstab checks out with:
    /dev/discs/disc2/part1 vfat rw,users,defaults,umask=000  0   0

    Whazzup?

      I have discovered that I can ....open in file manager...all of my linux hdd partitions of which there are six...in user mode!!  However, none of the windows hdd provide any ...open in file manager...response.  This indicates something amiss in the windows area.  The file manager runs correctly in ..root... but doesn't do so in user mode for opening windows hdd .

   The file manager runs in KDE using ..disc free access to all hdd's.

     I used the term....users... in fstab to enable all users.

    I don't have a clue for fixing this problem!!!! roll

Problem is solved...this dumbo had to learn the hard way!

     Cannot access files in fat HDD in user mode if...drive is alreasdy mounted in root mode.   Drive must be unmounted in root and then re-mounted in user to permit user access.
