When you plug in the drive, is it recognized by the OS? It should print 
some lines to the console and to /var/log/messages.

Also, some USB flash drives seem to be just quirky. I have something 
called Travelling Disk, and attempts to mount it can fail 10 times in a 
row and succeed 11th time (admittedly, this is with a year-old 
4.7-STABLE system). Go figure...
