Date: 2013sep25 OS: Linux Q. How do I mount a flash/thumb drive on a headless box? A. If you are running a GUI like Gnome or KDE it will probably be automatically mounted for you. On a headless machine you have to do the work. First search dmesg to see its name:dmesg | grep -i SCSII got several lines but this is relevant one:[ 2.945821] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable diskSo now I know its device sdc. (Which I could have guessed since I already have a sda and sdb.) Now issue the usual mounting commands:mkdir /mnt/thumb mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/thumbThere is no need to specify the type (with -t) since it will be figured out for you. Its likely vfat.
