Flash USE drive?


How would i go about getting my flash USB drive to work with lunix?
I went to the Admin menu and "scaned for removable storage devices", but nothing was found.

Any ideas?
Thanks,

Your thumbdrive should be /dev/sda or /dev/sdaX (replace X with a number between 1 and 9). Try to mount /dev/sda to a folder you create. Like so

mount /dev/sda /mnt/thumbdrive -t vfat
