Stupid me /dev/sda is the zip drive and uses the 4th partition. Therefore:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip

Have you tried to mount the hard drive using /dev/sdb1?

As weird as this sounds, I haven't changed any of my devices. It's all plugged into the same places they've been for the past several days, but when I mounted /dev/sda4 it mounted my 20 GB USB drive, so it's all starting to work out now. I just had to rename my directories from Windows so that there weren't any spaces. Hopefully, this will be all I need for this thread, but it wouldn't hurt to keep checking up in case I shoot everything to hell somehow n

from an earlier post of yours:

Attached scsi disk sdb at scsi1
try mounting /dev/sdb1, and not /dev/sda1

You can check what disks and partitions are there by doing
fdisk -l
(as root).
