Over the night I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop. Since I am yet unable to access my actual installation I boot the Live CD from which I installed (takes ages in a fast system).
I noticed that when I insert the USB stick (1GB) into the USB slot, it appears listed on the window. However when I double click on it or select Mount or Open or whatever it just does nothing.
No error message, no fiels are visible, nothing, it simply leaves me in the dark.
How do I know what's the name of the device? How can I mount it? Why doesn't it mount it on my command using the GUI?
