Give some way for what? You don't provide any information about your hardware, what error(s) you're getting, or anything else. What have you done and tried so far? Or did you just plug it in and wait, then post here?

plug your pen drive and type "/sbin/fdisk -l", then post the result, you can "dmesg" too just after having pluging it, and post the last lines.

USB Drive

Try downloading and install the linux drivers for your usb drive.

If your doing this through command line, then try mounting the usb drive...

Uhhh....he probably doesn't need to download and install any 'drivers'...that's a Windows thing.

Linux has USB storage support. Unless he's got a very exotic type of USB drive, it's probably auto-recognized and either auto-mounted, or ready to be mounted.
