Umm, thats cause that mount point probably doesn't exist. The command was:
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/removable
not
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mount/removable

Check if the needed modules are loaded and post: lsmod|grep usb
Also, is the drive partitioned and formatted?

Come to think of it, post also fdisk -l with the drive plugged in. Although it looks like you're missing a module, like uhci-hcd, ehci-hcd or ohci-hcd depending on your hardware.
