Good evening,
I shall like knowing how a USB device of storage is managed under Debian and more generally under LINUX.
Apparently LINUX seems to assimilate the USB to a shape of SCSI.

This is true, linux kernels have been doing that for quite a while now.

How do you do to mount or umount a USB storage device.

mount -t vfat /dev/<proper device name> <where you want to mount it>

With DBIAN there is no modification of the file /etc/fstab when you connect a USB storage device.

You may want to look into using the automount package, if you wanted to
have your usb or other udev devices mounted automatically.
