    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 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
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    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.
