I have an OS X Lion recovery stick that I would like to access, specifically to use it to install Lion in a Virtualbox VM. I notice that Windows detects and mounts the recovery stick as an optical drive. I know the drive works, because I am able to install Lion from it on a Mac. In Ubuntu, the drive does not automount, and I cannot figure out how to mount it manually. Ubuntu version is 11.04 amd64. I have not found any forum posts or comments from other people trying to do this.
The output of
0 dev='/dev/sg3' rwrw-- : 'APPLE' 'USB DISK'
When I try to mount it with
sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sg3 /mnt:
mount: special device /dev/sg3 does not exist
dmesg | tail:

Any ideas how to mount this volume and read from it?
