Please plug in your USB-Stick and post the output of dmesg and lsusb here

Or are you simply asking for the mount command ?

As for mine I just use mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /media/memory

that's because when I insert my usbstick it detects it as sda1

just type dmesg and read the last few lines that should give you a clue
