That's the problem with "Old Fogeys". Always afraid of the newest 
conveniences. *<]:oD

I feel like auto-mounting the other drives on my own computer, and my 
own devices, is ok. It's highly unlikely that I'm going to knowingly 
install some file on my own devices that would be malicious. 
Auto-mounting strange disks/devices should in most instances be viewed 
with suspicion.

Back to the OP's issue. He was trying to move things from one drive on 
his computer to another. IMHO, that should be as nearly invisible as it 
can be.

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
