Try

mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb

where sdb1 (or sda1, or something else) should be specified as found in

tail /var/log/messages

right after plugging the usb-device. You should see something like this

Mar 2 01:10:11 svintuss kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:04.2-1.2, assigned
address 17
Mar 2 01:10:11 svintuss kernel: WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not
