Mount USB in Ubuntu Server

By default, USB drive does not automount in Ubuntu Server Edition.

You can either install “usb-mount”, or mount it manually (see below).

Get the information (what is the device, e.g. /dev/sdb1):

sudo fdisk -l

Create mount point:

sudo mkdir /media/external

Mount the drive:

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/external

Here -t is the filesystem type. Most flash drives are FAT16 or FAT32.

Unmount the drive:


sudo umount /dev/sdb1


sudo umount /media/external
