First of all, what do you mean by a quick df? Typing a command 'df'? Sorry for the questions but it's been a long time since I worked with Linux in any form.
EDIT: Okay, I tried 'df' as you suggested but I didn't see anything listed that looked like it would be the USB drive.
I have tried to mount /dev/sdf with the following command:
sudo mount -t usbfs /dev/sdf /media/usb
When I do, after I cd to /media/usb, I don't see my files. I do, however, see the following:
001 002 003 004 005 devices
EDIT: Sorry, I should mention that all the numbers were colored blue and 'devices' was the same color as the prompt.
I don't know if that might be relevant or not but I'll include it here in hopes it could help.
