How do I mount this USB drive in Fedora?

It would be really nice when Linux automatically realizes that there is a USB drive in .
I can't figure out how to mount, and no documentation on the internet seems to cover exactly what I want.

I have a memory card reader, which i assume can be treated like any USB drive. I want to read the contents in my linux operating system, can somebody give me direction of how to mount this damn thing?

It's probably a FAT32 file system. The command to use might be something like:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive

Right. OK. I'll try and explain for real.

The mount command takes two arguments and some options.

The first argument is the thing you want to mount. In my experience, linux treats usb drives as if they're scsi drives; hence, I suggested /dev/sda1 and the first argument.

The second argument is the place you want the thing mounted. It has to be a directory that exists. Typically, such directories are located under /mnt, but the can be anywhere. I suggested /mnt/usbflash above. That directory probably doesn't already exist. You can create it, or use another.

There are a whole slew of mount options. The most important one is the type. The "-t vfat" part of the above command specifies the fat32 file type.

So, either create the /mnt/usbflash directory, or use an already existing one.
