Im new to the mac experience and I thought I had it all pretty much covered cause when I use the macs at my school I have never ran into this issue before so I am asking for some help on this. I have a file that I would like to have saved unto my mac from my usb flash drive but when i connect it to my mac it doesnt read the flash drive and would like to know if there is another way about going to get it done. thank you

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

At the left part of the Finder window, you will find its sidebar. Here, you should see a "Devices" list at the bottom of the sidebar. If you don't see it, scroll down, and finally, choose the USB drive.


To show it in Desktop, just go to the menu bar and press the "Finder" button, and then, select the "Preferences" option. Then, in the window you should see, tick "External disks", and the USB drive should appear in Desktop
