Have you tried to mount it manually?
i.e.
Code:
mkdir usbdisk
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 usbdisk
ls usbdisk

Is it possible that the drive may have been formatted something other than FAT?

Sure. Try "cfdisk /dev/sda" to see the partitions.

Or, as user "root", try the commands I posted without specifying the type with "-t vfat", i.e. simply "mount /dev/sda1 usbdisk". That should work regardless of the file system type, but again only if you are user root.
