    First you have to make two folders like so
    Code:
    cd /mnt/
    then after your in the mnt folder run these two commands
    Code:
    mkdir sda1
    Code:
    mkdir sdb1
    Now its just finding out if its sdb1 or sda1 if you cant figure it out go into your dev folder and just browse the sd's remember you still have to mount them still
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.

    man mount
    Follow the link or type the above in a terminal.
    Also check the rules you agreed to, one of them is to search before making a thread on something that has been covered already.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    You can get a list of available drives as follows:

    Code:
    sudo blkid | sort
    (I say to use "sudo" because I've gotten different output when not using "sudo"... really weird)

    Figure out which one you want to mount, then do:

    Code:
    cd
    mkdir my_usb_stick
    sudo mount /dev/sdb3 my_usb_stick
    From there you can access your USB stick under ~/my_usb_stick/

    Or you can just open Konqueror and navigate to Storage Devices. Double-click on the drive you wanna explore.
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
