You're using Linux, not Windows. Unless you use a distro that automatically handles such things, you're going to manually mount and unmount devices.
Which version of DSL?
1. With version 4+, right click on a desktop icon. Scroll down to mount. Select sda1, sdb1, etc., depending on mount point for that device.
2. In emelfm, go to /mnt. You should see an entry for sda1, sdb1, etc. Select the mount point for your device, right click, mount.
3. In terminal window, mount the device according to its mount point: e.g., "mount /mnt/sda1".
Don't forget to unmount (and wait a moment) before pulling the device back out or you might corrupt the data.
