Data Need help with mounting my USB

My previous post seems to be erased and I didn't get any help. I'm logged as root now but no mounting command seems to work, I've tried:

Mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/USB

Changing "sdc1" for hda1-7, and sdc1-7, and still nothing. Sometimes i get:
"special device not found" and others "device already mounted or busy" but there's nothing mounted. I'm using Slackware. USB is the folder on /mnt that I created for mounting. Suggest please. The stick FS is fat, I'm sure about it and my windows partition read it just fine.SmilieSmilieSmilieSmilie

After connecting the stick, wait for a few seconds, and take a look at the last few lines of dmesg. It should print there as which device the drive was created.

Nothing there man. Had already done it and did it again. Might the fact that i'm using virtual box affect?

A virtual box may not have direct access to real devices, yes.

Which version of VirtualBox do you have? The Open Source Edition (OSE) or the closed one. I am not sure about USB support in OSE. In the closed source version, USB devices get plugged in - but you should remember *not* to filter them
