I have Ubuntu installed on a USB drive, along with other files. Is there any way I can access the other files from within Ubuntu? I can mount other devices like my hard disk and my DVD, but I can't see any way to get at the other files on the USB drive.

This depends on how you set up your USB drive for it to contain both Ubuntu and "other files"? – user98085 Mar 28 '13 at 0:41

Look in filesystem/cdrom. To see the files on the root of the USB drive, when booting the USB drive.
