usb jumpdrove in fedora not showing up


I cannot see my USB jumpdrive in the media directory. I tried the drives in front of the PC and also the ones on the side of the monitor but it will not appear. How can this be solved?
Thanks

Try connecting the drive, and then use the command 'dmesg | tail'. This will show you the last few messages sent by the kernel. There should be some mention of the USB drive being detected. Assuming the drive is being detected okay by the kernel, with no errors, then you probably don't have the automount program set up. Maybe someone a little more familiar with Fedora can help you with that.

Edit: damn, too slow!

Can't help you with the automounter, but the following steps should help you access the usb drive contents until you get that figured out.

Code:
# cd /mnt && mkdir usb-drive
# chmod o+rw usb-drive
# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/usb-drive
Then your regular users should have access to the contents under /mnt/usb-drive. When you're done with it, don't just pull it out of the PC. Use
Code:
# umount /mnt/usb-drive
