Mounting a USB Flash Drive


I've tried reading all over the internet about how to mount my Lexar 512 MB USB Flash drive, but I still cannot get it to work. I tried dmesg with it in and here is the output:

from that it looks like the usb flash drive is /dev/sda -- correct me if I'm wrong.
I then created a mount-point, mkdir /mnt/usb/ and mounting it
Quote:
mount /dev/sda /mnt/usb/
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
so I tried
Quote:
mount -vt vfat /dev/sda /mnt/usb/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
and then I tried dmesg | tail, which gave me this:
Quote:

which correctly shows my "512" flash drive. I then tried adding a line to fstab and rebooting, with no luck, I the tried a little variation on the line, also unsuccessful. Here is the line I tried:
Quote:
/dev/sda /mnt/usb vfat users,defaults,noauto 0 0
but I couldn't get it to mount. Any ideas?

The partition is probably on sda1. Mine, for example, is setup like this:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/fat vfat users,defaults,noauto 0 0

As root, use fdisk -l. This will show all of your partitions.
