mount second USB flash drive


Hi,
I am running debian server on my computer and a printer is connected to it via USB. I want to store my data to a USB flash drive but I am not able to alocate my flash drive. When I plug in the flash drive it shows that it recognizes flash drive and i think it even mount it but I am not able to find where it is mounted. This is just a server version which doesn´t have graphical interface.

Thanks

Once you have inserted the USB drive, just run
Code:
fdisk -l
to find its location

You can also see what's mounted (and where) by just running "mount".

What exactly doesn't show anything about USB? This seems to contradict that earlier quote :/.
