you just need to mount the usb drive if linux doesnt do it automatically

mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/usbflash

check the device by after plugging the falsh drive in typing:

dmesg |less

check towards the end for which device the thing is linked to

as for your mount point /mnt/usbflash is just what i use, you can use any mount point
