Make your Raspberry Pi a media sharing friendly device with a mounted USB Thumb Drive. by scottkildall

This is another one of my “meat-and-potatoes” Raspberry Pi Instructables.

What this Instructable will show you how to do is to configure your Raspberry Pi to recognize and automatically mount a USB thumb drive. This is especially useful for exchanging files, running backups and using your Pi as a media device.

Before doing this Instructable, please make sure you have your Raspberry Pi up and running, which you can do with The Ultimate Raspberry Pi Configuration Guide Instructable.

I’m using the Mac OS for this guide, but you can extend the principles to other operating systems.
