More info please.



What format is the USB drive, fat32, ext#, etc etc?
Is there an entry for it in /etc/fstab? (USB drives do not normally need a fstab entry.)
Is the partition on it labelled, ie named "lexar" so that it should mount at /media/lexar folder?

...then you probably need to run GParted and consider re-formatting it.
