Thanks for the quick answer. Just for clarification that this is the solution for the problem. My device is booting Debian from the I have no problem there. It does not connect (mount) my drives in the USB port after reboot...Debian is booting ....I have to re-connect the drives..boot again...and connect if the system is up.

If you wan't to automount external drives you need following:

debian:~$ blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="MP3" UUID="cf17ed2b-fb8a-49cf-bb75-adfe52bf7849" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sda2: LABEL="Data" UUID="323852e7-6e71-4277-bf25-d9c673a32de9" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sdb1: UUID="2a01384c-2301-42d6-bc85-98ebdfb1a7b3" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sdb2: TYPE="swap"

Should looks similar to your message. Then edit the fstab:

debian:~$ nano /etc/fstab

Add these lines to your fstab (edit the UUID that it matches for you)
# Mount the external HDD
UUID=cf17ed2b-fb8a-49cf-bb75-adfe52bf7849 /mnt/mp3 ext2 rw,auto,user 0 0
UUID=323852e7-6e71-4277-bf25-d9c673a32de9 /mnt/data ext2 rw,auto,user 0 0

Save an reboot, hope this solves your problem!
