USB device not working

This is an easy question, I was too lazy to read the docs... ;)

I have Gentoo installed, but I can't mount any USB devices. My USB mouse works without problems, but when I insert a USB device and use mount I get the error: no medium found. When I use lsusb, I can see my device, but I can't mount it.

Any ideas???

I don't know the answer to your question, but I'd venture that opening with "I was too lazy to read the docs" *might* not be the best way to get help, especially with Gentoo ;)

I don't want this to sound like a RTFM reply, but if you aren't willing to read up a bit then I don't think you will have helpers beating a path to your door :)

Now I've fixed the previous problem, but got a new one. Every time I get: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device. How do I fix this one? I'm tired of the problems with USB!

Please help me on this one or I'll start :cry:
