Open a terminal session and give this command:
If you are not root give this:
sudo fdisk -l
On the screen you'll see all disks that you have connected. Usually the drives which are connected through usb are listed as /dev/sda or /dev/sdb etc
and below you can see the partions like this:
assuming that drive has only one partition.
Now you have to create a local folder in which you'll mount the usb drive.
Give this command:
Now you can mount the drive to that folder /mnt/myusb.
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/myusb
assuming that fdisk -l shows the usb drive as /dev/sda and it has only one partition.
