How do I mount a drive (specifically an SD Card)?


I know this is a stupid question, but how do I mount a drive?

I've got several onboard card readers (CF, SD etc.) in my computer but I'm not sure how to use them under Mandrake 10.0. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'd like to try and mount my iPod as well, but I think that might be more difficult...

I am running slack, and by no means an expert, but here is a short version. This is how I mount my digital camera (it uses a CF card) and this also works for my USB pen drive. First, you have to make sure that your USB is configured and you have the USB core and USB storage modules loaded. This should take care of the basics. Next like any other drive, you need to make sure you have a mount point, mine is /usb. Once you plug the drive in you can just mount it with the following command:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /usb

If all goes well you should be able to acces your drive at /usb.
