    you mean like this?
    # cd /dev/sda
    bash: cd: /dev/sda: Not a directory
    You can't cd to a device. You can ls a device though
    (with the flash drive inserted)
    # ls -l /dev/sda
    brw-rw----+ 1 root disk 8, 0 2006-09-25 22:31 /dev/sda

    if you get an output like that then that is the device. It needs to be mounted to an appropriate directory for you to access it.
    mine auto mounts to /media/robert which is the volume name of the flash drive
