My Sony pen drive gets detected in windows but I cannot find it on my Ubuntu. I formatted the drive with FAT,FAT32 and NTFS but the same problem. I went through FAQs but did not find anything helpful. I can see Typing lsusb gives me:

paru@paru-Studio-1558:~$ lsusb

Have you tried plugging it in a Windows machine after Ubuntu? –  Mitch Mar 29 '13 at 7:03
    
what is the output of: sudo lshw ... you'll need to determine which part is relevant –  penner Mar 29 '13 at 7:05
    
Do you know if your drive shows up under /dev ? Are you sure that you have ntfs drivers installed on your system? Assuming that your thumb drive is /dev/sdb, you can enter df -hT /dev/sdb1 at the terminal to verify the filesystem format and mount point. –  user145218 Mar 29 '13 at 7:24
    
Also, check out what dmesg tells you before and after you plug the drive. You can skip the boring part by filtering the output of dmesg through tail: "dmesg | tail". If everything is OK, it should write something about an added (scsi?) removable drive and give you a device node like /dev/sdX... –  soulsource Mar 29 '13 at 10:07
