USB devices usually work well with Linux. However, there is some variation
amonst Linux variants as to how they are handled.
They may appear as a folder on your desktop. Do what you need, and then right
click on the folder to unmount the device, or data corruption may occur.
The system may create an entry for the device in the /media directory. So try
ls /media to see if there is an USB device, if there is a device,
mount /media/usbdisk1 and then you must remember to type
umount /media/usbdisk1 after you have finished to avoid data
Option 3 Finally some awkward devices will need the system manager to
set up a specific mountpoint for them, eg /usb1. If option 1 and 2 fail, ask the
help of the system manager.
