Re: how to removable media restriction?
You may do better posting in the SLES rather than SLED forum
I can't try recreating this issue as I don't have a SLES install with any sort of graphical environment installed, but I wonder is this will help:
The page says it applies to SLES and SLED but I've never seen a root password prompt for mounting USB media in SLED. This post by says that in SLES only root can mount USB devices and it's Malcolm saying it so I believe it
Maybe mounting the drive manually would help.
The value of whatever can be found by looking at the output of dmesg after you attach the USB device. E.g. If dmesg says the device has been allocated /dev/sdd then replace whatever with sdd1 to mount the first partition.
$ mkdir /media/foo
$ mount /dev/whatever /media/foo
