Why don't you just plug in the drive and then tail the dmesg. Like this
Code:
dmesg | tail

You seem to be missing the required drivers. Please run the following
command to add the usb_storage module into the running kernel:
Code:
modprobe usb_storage
Now try inserting your usb stick again, and then look at the output of dmesg.

HTH,

Evo2.
