    Hi dunes-dude,

    Give us the output of this command, you may require to change user to root and invoke it.

    Change to root: su (password and press enter)

    then: fdisk -l

    Paste the output here.

    Good luck!

    Well, if you don't already have one, you need to create a mount point for it.
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/sdb1
    Then you can try mounting it, if you know the filesystem type.
    Code:
    mount -t "type" /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
    Where "type" is your filesystem type such as ext3 or vfat
    Check the man page for mount.
    Code:
    man mount
