Question Move file from a USB stick to an SD card


I am working with an OLPC XO in Terminal. I have a file (called olpc.fth) that I need to move from my USB stick to my SD card. However, I cannot figure out how to do that via terminal. My card and stick are mounted, but I am not sure how to access them and see what is on them. I ASSumed it would be a copy (cp) command, however, since I cannot figure out how to even get onto the USB stick, I can't get to that step. TIA.

Hi,

If the devices are mounted then from the terminal/console;

Code:
~#ls /mountpoint_USB_stick   #list contents
~#ls /mountpoint_SD          #list contents
~#cp -p /mountpoint_USB_stick/somefile /mountpoint_SD/someNewFile
The above will copy the file from the usb_stick to the SD. You can 'man cp'
