usb key mount and...

Dear All,

I'm having the d*mndest time figuring out how to mount a USB key in Debian Lenny. I read this thread, but the problem is that my USB stick is showing up at sdb - but there is no sdb1 to mount. Is there any simple solution to this?

Apologies for my newbie-ness, and thanks to all.

Doh! I just tried mounting /dev/sdb and it worked. I had always assumed that non-numbered disks had no file system... thanks.

Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 3 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.

To be honest, I saw this post yesterday, But not being too familiar with the debians, thought I would just watch for a while.

I'm glad you got it worked out.

Things are continually changing with GNU/Linux, and it's not surprising that some old commands don't work on all systems.

Regards Glenn
