Plug in the USB drive.
Go to a root shell.
look in /mnt for the partition - EX: sda1
mount the partition - EX: mount /mnt/sda1

We have a GUI tool. Control Panel -> Mount Tool
Clicking top button cycles through devices, clicking bottom button will change status mount/unmount.

Thanks the mount tool worked,  /mnt gave Permission Denied even at root.
