USB Storage device

I have a small USB storage device. How can I mount this drive and see the content stored on this device. The device is known as pen drive.

manual says add following line in usbmgr.conf (in /etc/usbmgr):

vendor 0xd7d product 0x 100 module scsi_mod, usb-storage.

But I am unable to find the file usbmgr.conf. Please help.

I was able to get my USB memory stick recognized by running harddrake on Mandrake 8.2. But I don't even know if that was necessary. Anyway, I now just type mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/sony and it mounts it under mount sony.

Hi there!
All I have to do to make my Storage device work is the following.
I've got scsi and usb support built into the kernel, and the usb-storage support is built as a module.
So I do

modprobe usb-storage
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/cam

Works great!
Good luck!
