    uhci_hcd
    ehci_hcd

    Try mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/stick

    That should work, try sdb1 if it doesn't.

    well I tryed that, but all I get is:
    mount :/dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

    same for other /dev/sdxx

    I thought that I would find all valid blockdevices with

    fdisk -l

    no?
