Debian Installer Jessie Beta 1 release USB installation problems.

Hi folks,

This is a request that installation usb flash drives be treated in the
same way as installation discs.

Test installations with first two 32 bit DVDs and corresponding usb

During the DVD installation. At "Configure Packet Manager" the option
"Scan extra discs" was offered.  This option was skipped during the
flash drive installation.

After the initial reboot the DVD was recognised when extra software was
installed.  The flash drive was not.

However, if /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/OOCDMountPoint was modified 


Acquire::cdrom {
  mount "/media/cdrom";
Dir::Media::MountPath "/media/cdrom";


Acquire::cdrom {
  mount "/media/usb";
Dir::Media::MountPath "/media/usb";
		Then the first flash drive was recognised for the installation of new
This also works with wheezy.

As expected, apt-cdrom add did not recognise the second flash drive.
