Some additional information is required: 1. what is the size in Mb or Gb of the pen drive? 2. can you post the output of the following commands (the first one as root) when the pen drive is already inserted in USB port?
Code:
fdisk -l
mount
the first should see your pen drive. The second will tell us about the actually mounted filesystems.

So this is the problem. Is the USB port working? Can you try it using another USB device? Another test: unplug and plug the pen drive again. Immediately after run
Code:
dmesg | tail -50
to see if there is some relevant error message. Copy/paste the lines here if in doubt.

Can you see what is partition name for the usb drive? It is should be there in dmesg.

Then you can mount it using mount command

mount -t vfat <device> <mount point>

Like

mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/usb

Here the mount point should exist. If it is not there then create the directory.

Unless you know on which port the usb drive is recognized it is difficult to mount it. Can you check with some other usb drive? Or on other usb port?
