Mount a USB drive in Ubuntu using command
Ubuntu Desktop will auto discover the USB drive when you connect to the computer. However, if you are using server with only access to the shell, you can still mount it manually.
1. Find out the correct device using the fdisk command. Pay attention to the disk space so you can recognize the correct device easily, e.g. /dev/sdb1
# sudo fdisk -l
2. Create a mount folder
# sudo mkdir /mnt/usb1
3. Finally, mount it
# sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb1
Now you can put files into this folder (/mnt/usb1) and it will be saved in your USB drive.
