You should be able to mount USB drives using any file manager by simply clicking on it

or in command-line with the mount command: for that you would need to know where it is in /dev/ - easy way to find out: disconnect USB drive, type ls /dev/, connect it again, type the same command and see what changed, Let's suppose it was sdb and sdb1: Type mkdir /media//USB Then type sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media//USB
