usb jetflash mount


I just bought a 2gb jetfkash ubd stick, I reboot my cpu w/ the stick in and then I type dmesg which gives me the following:

hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x58f/0x6387) is not claimed by any active driver.
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: JetFlash Model: TS2GJFV30 Rev: 8.07
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured
USB Mass Storage device found at 2
USB Mass Storage support registered.

I then type "mount" and it gives me:

usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)

The question I have is...Is this device mounted already and if it is, how do I transfer files to it?

can you post 'dmesg | tail' after plugging in the device? if recognized properly, you should see the device file that its using, and youll be able to mount that and be all set (this will usually be /dev/sdb or some other sd*). if not, then you may not have a module loaded would be my guess.

If your system uses udev, it is common to create a directory on the fly in /media/ and mount the device there.
The /media/ location is an LSB standard, so your system may use it as well to create dynamic mount points for removable media.
