You need to mount hard disks on USB.

#sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/<find out> /<directory>

I tryout sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/usbdev5.2 but i got a help output...


I tryout dmesg,and i got this(see below) what is probably the sata harddisk. connecting a cdrom at the sata/ide cable worked,so there is a possibility that the new sata harddisk is not working...

usb drives will be mapped to /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc ... if you already have a /dev/sda.
