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
