Ususally usb drives show up as /dev/sda1 or /dev/sda2 need a number. To find out which dev node the drive is using (as root):

fdisk -l

This will list both mounted and unmounted drives.

Then, just do a mount /dex/sdaX /mnt/usb

replace X with the right number.


You'll need a /mnt/usb folder obviously.


To simply the process add a line to /etc/fstab with the mount point you want.

Note: on some distros you need to be root to mount drives. I find this annoying so I add myself to the disk group in /etc/groups
