This USB thing is driving me crazy. 2 problems in time span of 3 hours.
Ok I was already trying to cope up with "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock" error while mounting FAT Drives when to my amazement I discovered that none of the USB Storage devices showed up in the system

Useful outputs:

Apparently, the kernel somehow had problems (maybe a bug). Since there was an updated version, I installed it:

sudo apt-get install linux-generic  

now reboot in your new kernel.
