so that means your flashdrive isn't mounted

in terminal type in "fdisk -l"
as root, that's a dash and little L

do that with usb in computer

it will see usb as sdc1, sdf1, sdb1, etc

then make a mountpoint
"mkdir /mnt/sdxx"
where xx is the flashdrive
like
"mkdir /mnt/sdb1"
then mount it
"mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1"
now its mounted and should appear under /mnt in file manager

YOU MUST USE THE UNMOUNT COMMAND before you take the usb out!!
use
"umount /mnt/sdb1"

if you pull the usb out of computer before unmounting it will damage it

is your usb 8gb?

if so that's it
sda1 is your usb

so to open a root file manager in terminal
become root and
"nautilus"
and then access the usb
