Doesn't work is not very informative.
Does fdisk -l show the USB device?
Does a directory show up for it in /mnt?

Hi Maxbillion
Mounting is not the physical act of plugging it in. Click on the desktop and go to
  SystemTools->MountTool
Then click on the red button that represents your device.

Most likely your USB stick is recognized and a mounting point created automatically in the /mnt directory.

You can either mount it manually or add a script, install a DE environment, etc. to get it mounted automatically. Read forum:

There are other discussion on topic too.
