The usb-storage driver registers as a SCSI interface, thus your USB mass storage devices come up as
You could use the entire device (/dev/sda) or you could partition it (/dev/sda1)
A quick fdisk -l /dev/sda will tell you what is there and how it is set up. If there is no output
it's an entire device, or else it will give you the partition layout.

/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 auto user,noauto,sync
