Problem mounting USB storage Omega2+
I'm trying to use USB storage, so I plug in de USB device and according to the documentation it should be automatically mounted and located in /mnt/ by default, but I can't see the USB storage there (sda1)
root@Omega-6E16:~# ls /mnt/ mtdblock7
I couldn't find it in /dev :
root@Omega-6E16:~# ls /dev/ autofs ppp tty40 bus ptmx tty41 console pts tty42 cpu_dma_latency random tty43 full shm tty44 gpiochip0 snd tty45 gpiochip1 spidev0.1 tty46 gpiochip2 tty tty47 i2c-0 tty0 tty48 kmem tty1 tty49 kmsg tty10 tty5 ledchain2 tty11 tty50 log tty12 tty51 mem tty13 tty52 memory_bandwidth tty14 tty53 mtd0 tty15 tty54 mtd0ro tty16 tty55 mtd1 tty17 tty56 mtd1ro tty18 tty57 mtd2 tty19 tty58 mtd2ro tty2 tty59 mtd3 tty20 tty6 mtd3ro tty21 tty60 mtd4 tty22 tty61 mtd4ro tty23 tty62 mtd5 tty24 tty63 mtd5ro tty25 tty7 mtd6 tty26 tty8 mtd6ro tty27 tty9 mtd7 tty28 ttyS0 mtd7ro tty29 ttyS1 mtdblock0 tty3 ttyS2 mtdblock1 tty30 uinput mtdblock2 tty31 urandom mtdblock3 tty32 vcs mtdblock4 tty33 vcs1 mtdblock5 tty34 vcsa mtdblock6 tty35 vcsa1 mtdblock7 tty36 watchdog network_latency tty37 watchdog0 network_throughput tty38 zero null tty39 port tty4
The mounting configuration seems to be fine:
root@Omega-6E16:~# vi /etc/config/fstab config global option anon_swap '0' option auto_swap '1' option auto_mount '1' option delay_root '5' option check_fs '0' option anon_mount '1'
Can you help me, please?

@Jorgehst The first thing I would do is check if the insertion of the USB key is detected. To do this you can check the logs using the command logread. If the insertion of the device is not detected then it won't be mounted.
What type of USB device are you using? Have you tried a different USB device? If so what?
What dock are you using?

@crispyoz Thank you for your prompt reply and your help. At the end it was a problem of the customized PCB, it wasn't well rooted.
I'm a newer user to Arch and Linux in general. I've got a pretty robust installation running on my computer with Fluxbox, PCManFM and SLiM for the graphical side (if these matter). Everything's running pretty well at the moment except I'd like to be able to auto-mount USB storage devices. Without adding the udev rule as mentioned here (because I would like the mounting to persist through a terminal window popping open), what's the best way to have things auto-mount like they do in Ubuntu or Windows? By this I mean I would plug in a USB flash drive and it'd automatically be mounted to somewhere like /media/<device name>/ and any user (or the one running x? or something) would have permissions to view/edit/execute.
