Hi,

have you looked in 'dmesg' and /var/log/messages to check that it has been assigned /dev/sdb?

As usual, it might help to see the actual
command with its actual error message, rather
than vague descriptions or interpretations.
Similarly:

grep usb fstab

You can mount the perndrive by using command.

# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
