USB flash disk

I have an USB flash disk(64M) and I don;'t know how to make it mount under linux.
the dmesg shows :
hub .c: new USB devive ... assigned address 6
warning: USB mass storage data integrity not assured
USB mass storage device fund at 6
I tried to mount /mnt/USBHDD /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda, they don't work (not a block device)
can someone show me how to mount it?

"mount /mnt/USBHDD /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda"

try # mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/USBHDD

also make sure it is entered in your /etc/fstab

I have the same problem with my new FlashDisk. I cannot mount it, because I receive an error message:
linux:/home/thomas/sajat/sbin # mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 ./t
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
linux:/home/thomas/sajat/sbin #
If I edit the fstab, I get the same message at startup. I have a photo machine too with USB cable, and there is no problem to mount it. Can anybody help me?
