1. Insert your usbcamera or usbstick or usbmp3
2. Become root
3. Go to /dev and search for the scsi entries sda, sdb, sdc ...
If one of these entries is followed by a number (eg. sde1), then there is a device recognized on that entry.
4.Make a directory in your /mnt directory that will become the mountpoint for your device (eg. /mnt/flash)
5. Edit /etc/fstab. Add the following line (supposed sde1 is the scsi-entry and /mnt/flash is your mountpoint):
/dev/sde1 /mnt/flash vfat noauto,owner 0 0
6. Save your fstab file
7. Go to the console and mount your new device with the command (without the quotes) "mount /mnt/flash"

That's it.

Good night, I'm going to sleep now.
