You can see the list of available partitions using "fdisk -l /dev/sda".
Then try mouting it by hand first (as root):
mount /dev/sdaX /media/usbdrive. If that works, then edit your fstab
(just faster by hand :)). Also check syslog for mount errors (check in
real time using: tail -f /var/log/syslog in a terminal)

Good luck
