i cant find removable device in arch linux


Hi.
My linux distribution is Arch linux.

I have xfce4 interface installed and pretty much everything.
It runs smooth, and fine.
But today when I try to use my USB stick to transfer some files, I can't see the removable device (USB Stick) in my file manager. ( Looked in cd home, and filesystem.)

Can someone help me how to make my removable device to show up.

I even used this command # udevadm monitor when my usb was plugged in and when I remove it, i get message in the terminal saying "remove blah blah blah".

I believe my usb ports are working fine, but I dont know how to locate my usb stick folder.

Help is appreciated. And please I try searching on google plus even forums, and can't understand or find the solution for it.

How is "blah blah blah" supposed to help people diagnose your problem for you? In future please post the relevant error messages in full, rather than assume forum members are psychic.

Unplug the USB drive.
Run in a terminal
Code:
 # tail -f /var/log/messages
and plug the usb drive in
You should see something to the effect of:
Code:

That will tell you the device node (in this case, sdc), you can then mount it manually..

Thank you for your reply and I do apologize for typing blah blah blah.
Next time I would fix that.
But When I tried your command I dont get that message
This is what I get.

Code:
 tail: cannot open `/var/log/messages' for reading: No such file or directory
And yes I did unplug the usb and typed that command.

Can you post the output of:

Code:
ls -l /var/log/ | grep messages
