Auto should work, but the FS should be vfat, so -

stand alone command:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /media/usb
(-t means type; again, paths may be different)

or in fstab:
/dev/sda1/     /media/usb   vfat   noauto,users   0   0

...and then:
mount /media/usb

You can get more info with "man mount" and "man fstab"
