    Execute this
    Code:
    mkdir /media/sd_card
    mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/sd_card
    Check /media/sd_card folder. You must have root privileges to execute above commands.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    It formatted in FAT32 filesystem already. If you want to format it again, execute this
    Code:
    umount /dev/sdb1
    mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb1
    mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/sd_card
    ls /media/sd_card

    I have just tried to put something on there and it doesn't let me.
    I'm not sure what's wrong with it.

    You must have root privileges to save/delete/edit files. Either login as root user Or give permissions to regular user by execute this
    Code:
    umount /dev/sdb1
    mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/sd_card -o defaults,umask=0
    umask=0 will allow Regular User to create/delete/edit files in it.

    Execute 'df -h' command and check where SD Card has been mounted.
