1. Check the output of dmesg after inserting the usb key.
Code:
$ dmesg
2. Look for something to the affect of "sda: sda1" (depending on your hardware). What this means is that the drive you inserted has been assigned the device name "sda" and the partition on it is called "sda1". To mount it, use something like this:
Code:
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

When I dmesg with sd or sda or sdb, nothing appears. When I dmesg with usb this is what I get:
Code:
/system/bin # dmesg | grep usb
<6>usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using s5pc110-ehci and address 2
<7>PM: Adding info for usb:1-1
<6>usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
<7>PM: Adding info for usb:1-1:1.0
<7>PM: Adding info for No Bus:usbdev1.2_ep01
<7>usb-storage: device found at 2
<7>usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
<7>PM: Adding info for No Bus:usbdev1.2_ep82
<7>PM: Adding info for No Bus:usbdev1.2
<7>PM: Adding info for No Bus:usbdev1.2_ep00
<7>usb-storage: device scan complete

don't pipe the message of dmesg to grep, if I remember right the line that specifies the "sda" does not have the string "usb" in it. Jut plug your pendrive and do dmesg,you might be able to see the "sda" line.

I don't have the lsusb binary in my embedded system, it was not installed, there is really no sdb/sda in the /var/log/messages. Apparently I have solved the problem by putting Y on all the config in the SCSI part of the kernel config file. I think I missed the sd_mod.ko module but I don't know exactly what compiles that so instead of compiling modules, I compiled all of them to be built-in and automatically installed during bootup. After that everything went well.
