Just Plug it in. I should auto-mount.

Question It does not.

I plug it in and nothing happens. My distro is probably different then urs so I probably need to manually mount it. I have a lot of USB ports so Im not shure what to do.

Edit your /etc/fstab and add this at the bottom:
Code:
/dev/sda1  /mnt/usb  vfat  defaults,rw,noauto,users,sync  0 0
Then what you want to do is type:
Code:
mkdir /mnt/usb
Now when you want to use it, plug it in then type:
Code:
mount /mnt/usb
Then before you unplug it type:
Code:
umount /mnt/usb
And yes, it is really "umount" not unmount!
