i tried mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt
mount -t msdos /dev/sda1 /mnt
1st you are trying to mount two devices on the same mount point (/mnt). you can't do this. secondly the command for msdos should be:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
presuming you have created /mnt/usb 1st.
i also doubt that the usb device is being created as '/dev/hdb1'. i would get it would be something like /dev/sda1/2 or /dev/uba1/2
1/2 being 1 or 2.
when you plug them in try doing 'dmesg |tail'. one of the easiest ways to find out, if you are running udev, is to plug the device in and type 'ls -lsrt /dev/'. and you will get the name of the last created device...
