Does your system see the USB device?
The system typically auto-detects it similar to what is shown here w/the blkid command:
(Note: on Debian you may not need to use sudo, adjust as required. Commands are shown in blue, output is shown in green)
From a terminal session:
sudo blkid /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb1: UUID="3722-5DEB" TYPE="vfat"
If it is there it may/should also show under:
sudo fdisk –l
with or without a mount point.
If it is not mounted, assuming it is /dev/sdb1, mount using this with the proper filesystem type:
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
(Note you may need to mkdir the /usb, adjust the sd*# as appropriate)
Again, sudo or su to root as required.
If that does not fix it it might be helpful if you post the output of the
blkid and fdisk commands.
Hope that helps and all the best,
