Fedora 19 USB automount doesn't work : SOLVED

Having installed Fedora 19 Schrodinger's Cat recently, a problem came up that the USB that used to get auto detected in earlier versions stopped working......and could not be seen anywhere in the file manager...and the disk showed the following screen which has no USB disk.

(CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO ENLARGE)

But the good thing is that on doing LSUSB at the terminal it was being shown as follows :

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 4033:0042 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 4051:0030 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 3d4b:0008 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1f6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0f6d:081b Logitech, Inc. Webcam C310
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0c61:4d0f Primax Electronics, Ltd HP Optical Mouse
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 03f0:5201 Sandisk 

so mounted it the terminal way..

make a directory in home by the name of usb

mkdir usb

and

at the terminal type lsblk that will give you where to mount.In my case it is sdc1. My output comes as follows :

NAME            MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda               8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk 
├─sda1            8:1    0 488.3G  0 part 
└─sda2            8:2    0 443.2G  0 part 
sdb               8:16   0 465.8G  0 disk 
├─sdb1            8:17   0   100M  0 part 
├─sdb2            8:18   0   500M  0 part /boot
└─sdb3            8:19   0 465.2G  0 part 
  ├─fedora-swap 253:0    0   5.8G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
  ├─fedora-root 253:1    0    50G  0 lvm  /
  └─fedora-home 253:2    0 409.4G  0 lvm  /home
sdc               8:32   1    30G  0 disk 
└─sdc1            8:33   1    30G  0 part /home/kalama/usb
sr0              11:0    1  1024M  0 rom 

now at the terminal simply type

mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /home/kalama/usb/


thats it ..now it will start showing when you do df -h as shown below :

[root@localhost ~]# df -h
