You could try mounting it with (after logging as su)

Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable
In /mnt/removable directory, you should be able to see the content... That's how I mount!

cheers!

I only have 2 folders in my mnt directory, cdrom, and floppy, do I just make a new folder for the pen drive?

Hi

this is how i mount my usb memory stick
root#mkdir /mnt/usbmem

then as user

user$mount -t vfat umask=0000 /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbmem

to unmount

user$umount /mnt/usbmem

or add the following in the /etc/fstab file

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbmem vfat noauto,user 0 0

right click the desktop, click 'create new' -> hard disk ->device tab
from the drop down box pick
/dev/sda1 (/mnt/usbmem)
this will put an access icon on your desktop, just like a cd or floppy. plug in the usb memory stick and double click the icon to mount it.

regards
GT

No need to create a new directory...
Feel free to mount it on any directory;-)

after using globeTrotter suggestion I got the usb pendrive mounted and I can view the contets, but I can only mount and unmount as root, can I just add my username after user? so that my username can mount and unmount the drive?

I never got the command line to work. Kept coming back with mount help as if
there was a syntax error. But the fstab entry is exactly what I wanted anyway.
Works like a charm.

cheers
