How to access USB Memory Key in Linux

USB Memory keys are hot pluggable. Windows Just Recognizes them and gives them as a drive.
 
How to use them under Linux?
 
  • dmesg and check the recognition by the kernel and the assignment to device /dev/sda*
    (* corresponds to the number which is assigned in your system;for my system it was sda1)
  •  mount -tvfat -oumask=0000 /dev/sda* /mnt/usbkey
