What does dmesg say when you plug it in?

While loading I have these:
kornerr@kornerr:~$ dmesg | grep "usb"
usbcore: registered new driver usbfs
usbcore: registered new driver hub
usbmon: debugfs is not available
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
kornerr@kornerr:~$ dmesg | grep "USB"
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
USB Mass Storage support registered.
And how do I get any msg when plugging in? I have no hotplug.

You should have usb_storage, usb_uhci, usb_ehci and usb_ohci support. While plugging in your usb drive, check /var/log/messages and post the results.

Try mounting /dev/sda1 - if you have multiple usb ports, they will have numbers on the end.

On a stock 10.1 install I get my usb flash drive working by adding this line to /etc/fstab.

/dev/sda /mnt/usb_drive vfat rw,users 0 0

Then mkdir /mnt/usb_drive

This allows any user to mount and read/write the memory stick (as long as I remember to unmount it not just pull it out :-))
