OK, sorry, it looks like the USB drive still isn't being detected.

Put the USB stick in before turning on the computer. After it boots up, try "lsusb -v" again. If nothing's there, there may still be a driver/hardware problem.

If the USB stick is identified there, try "fdisk -l" again. If it returns the same thing as before then there may be some issue with hotplug (the USB control software), if you did a "Hard Disk" installation (as opposed to a "frugal" installation) try booting from the CD and see whether USB works then. If so, a reinstall may be the simplest solution.

You might also check whether there are any USB related errors listed in dmesg (enter command "dmesg | less" or "dmesg | grep usb" in a terminal).

Hmm, unless there's a mistake in your mount command this seems to mean that DSL can't read the file system on the USB drive.

Check that the USB drive isn't formatted in exFAT, NTFS, or anything other than FAT32, FAT16, or a Linux file system. In DSL you can use "sudo fdisk -l" to list the partition structure of all the drives. If "HPFS/NTFS" is shown in the "system" section of the listing for the USB drive, it will probably need to be reformatted for use with DSL.

You might want to post the result of "sudo fdisk -l" here.

I checked the BIOS and USB was disabled there. So I turned on the USB, but now when I'm trying to mount USB stick i get the following error:
relocation error: mount: undefined symbol: blkid_known_fstype

If nothing appears in lsusb, that means the USB drivers are not working or haven't loaded.

try "lspci" (or look in the "pci" tab of the "system stats" tool) and see whether any USB controllers are shown. If so, there must be a driver problem and you should check online to see if the USB controller model reported on the lspci listing has any known workarounds or additional drivers for Linux.

If no USB controller is shown, check that the USB controller hasn't been accidentally disabled in the BIOS settings. Failing that, it would appear that either the USB controller has failed somehow since you last tested it, or there is a bug in the Linux kernel affecting your motherboard.
