Ina terminal enter the following command:

sudo gedit /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.devicekit.disks.policy

Find the action id:
org.freedesktop.devicekit.disks.filesystem-mount-system-internal

Within that action id look for the line:
<allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>

and replace it with:

<allow_active>yes</allow_active>

After saving it, try to mount the drive and see if it without authentication.

Good luck.
