mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

so
#mkdir /mnt/usb

IS there any way I could explore it using the GUI? or do I have to do it all through the shell if so what commands would i run to copy the files off of it?

file browsing

once you've mounted it as he said above you can go to /mnt/usb in your file browser and see the files on the jump drive.

I think you should firstly look at the /var/log/messages file because newly plugged device can be different from first SCSI device. Here is an example below:

Code:
Aug 23 18:25:56 labris1 kernel:   Vendor: Easy      Model: Disk              Rev: 2.00
Aug 23 18:25:56 labris1 kernel:   Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Aug 23 18:25:56 labris1 kernel: Attached scsi removable disk sdb at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Aug 23 18:25:56 labris1 kernel: SCSI device sdb: 256000 512-byte hdwr sectors (131 MB)
Aug 23 18:25:57 labris1 kernel: sdb: Write Protect is off
Aug 23 18:25:57 labris1 kernel:  sdb: sdb1 sdb2 sdb3 sdb4
Aug 23 18:25:57 labris1 kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered.
/dev/sda is my SCSI Hard Disc here..

Yes, you can.. Add a line to your /etc/fstab file like

Code:
/dev/sdb         /mnt/flash       auto        user             0   0
Here user means that a normal user can mount the device. So when you added this line, you'll be able to mount the device like

Code:
mount /dev/sdb
and the device will be mounted under /mnt/flash. Also you can use the command

Code:
mount /mnt/flash
Then, the corresponding device will be mounted again.
