Welcome to the first in the series of simple things I didn't need to know until I really, really did. This information is in note form, meaning very sumamrised. It's put here to jog my memory when I next need it. This issue is manually mounting a usb flash drive from the terminal in Linux.

Reference, and props: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/11637.html

lsusb
: lists the devices currently plugged into your usb ports.

dmesg | grep -i "SCSI device"
: lists the SCSI devices currently connected. Could be a hard-drive, typically a flash drive, look for the one with the right capacity, i.e. sdb

mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /home/Desktop/folder
: mount the drive to a folder, in vfat format, which most flash drives are.
