If you plug in a USB device, and then unplug without unmounting (if it auto-mounted, happens a lot), the device will not list as /dev/sda1 or such. Plug it in and see what the output of 'fdisk -l' is.
To mount my MP3 player I would do this:
# mkdir /mnt/mp3player/
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3player
and that would do me, HTH.
