I bought a 32GB USB flash drive from Woolworths.
But Ubuntu doesn't "see" it.
The USB flash drive icon doesn't appear on the Launcher (as is the case with every other type of removable storage), and Nautilus doesn't show the USB flash drive when I open a window...
However, if I am not mistaken, it does show in Terminal:
xxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxx-SVJ20215CGB:~$ sudo lsusb Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp.

I believe "Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Drive" is my USB flash drive, as it seems to disappear when I remove my USB flash drive and run the same command... The USB flash drive is connected via an unpowered USB hub - I haven't run the Terminal command when I connected it directly to the computer, but I did otherwise try connecting it to the computer and it seemingly made no difference.
The end-goal is that this USB flash drive will be re-formatted in a Microsoft Windows-friendly filesystem, and it will frequently be written to (it's specifically for playing content on our "smart" television and Blu-Ray Disk player), so I need it to automatically display/be accessible from Nautilus.
Any help would be appreciated...
