I've had this fun too ... what init system is 12.04 using?

I put a line for my cdrom in /etc/fstab, and it automounted fine - until
I rebooted the computer without a CD in the drive and systemd kicked me
into the recovery console as it treated the lack of a CD as a critical
error ...

So you have two obvious options here - (1) put your drives into fstab
with "noauto,user" options. That way either user id can manually mount
the drive, and the other should be able to see it, or (2) whatever init
system you've got, find out how to autodetect the insertion of the
drive, and automount it for you at a particular mount point. I think now
you can multimount these things, so maybe you could automount at both
~phil/2TB and ~patchy/2TB, and linux will sort out the access locks etc
for you ...
