maybe you can you try by mounting your device via the command:

mount -t <yourfilesystem> /your/dir /dev/sda

try to mount /dev/sda1 ( unless you have something else that is /dev/sda. In that case try sdb ) If it mounts, you are on the right track. (assuming that it IS your USB flash disk) If not, type
Code:
dmesg
and check for anything that looks like your USB flash disk. That'll provide us with some clues.
