Trouble mounting USB card player...

I was following along with the tutorial at,00.asp
but something has gone wrong. I followed along to the point where he wrote:
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
This is a useful debug tool to make sure the USB flash drive has been enumerated, and assigned a device name. Generally, the device name will be:

But /dev/sda1 doesn't exist!

Then, when I plug the reader in, the tailed message is
Mar 26 21:12:03 localhost kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:10.0-2, assigned address 5
Mar 26 21:12:07 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup usb-storage for USB product 7cc/201/12
and when I run lsusb, the output is
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 005: ID 07cc:0201 Carry Computer Eng., Co., Ltd
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Something seems to be going on with address/device5, I just don't know how to assign it in fstab (which I added the following line to):
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
After I changed this to sda because I noticed the only sd* files in /dev were sda@ and sdb@.
I would appreciate any help,
