Plug it in and then run dmesg and post the output (just the last 15 lines or so) here so we can see if anything's happening. Put the output between [ code ] and [ /code ] tags (without the spaces)

try mounting it by hand: 1st type " mkdir /mnt/usb". then type as root " mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb"
that should get it. of course mounting it by hand like this means you must mount it every time you turn the computer on .. .but hey, it works!

Or you can add that same information to the /etc/fstab file so that you don't have to do it by hand every time.
