Code:
Modprobe sg
Modprobe ide-scsi
Modprobe usbcore
Modprobe usb-uhci

if usb-uhci fails try this..
Code:
Modprobe usb-ohci

continue with..
Code:
Modprobe usb-storage
mkdir /mnt/zip
mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip


add this to /etc/fstab..
Code:
/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip vfat noauto user 0 0


now you can use this..
Code:
mount /dev/sda4

Yes you want to do this in a terminal, and no it doesn't matter whether it's from KDE or Gnome.
