Is that a very old Ubuntu version? Normally, a USB memory stick will be automounted on /media/usbdisk and found using your favourite file manager program.

I just checked again and this is dapper - sorry for that

the memory stick is on the pcmcia card so I need to mount it but don't know how
what to write in order to see it in the graphic menu when browsing my computer?

mount /media/usbdisk?

I may be a bit thick, but I can't visualize the setup: Is this a PCMCIA card with a USB port and a USB memory stick or is it a PCMCIA memory card reader? A PCMCIA card reader would probably be an "idedisk" and should automount under /media. If it's a PCMCIA USB adapter - are you sure the thing works at all?

Normall, Ubuntu works in a way that allows the user to attach a USB or PCMCIA device at any time. A drive of some sort (USB or memory card) will then be autmatically mounted by the O/S and they will be mounted in the directory /media and in their own subdirectory (/media/usbdisk or /media/idedisk or similar) you can find the files that are on this "drive" (device). User doesn't have to mount drives "by hand" as was customary in earlier Linux versions. You can navigate the file system using the "places" > "home" in the panel or by hand in a terminal window. Usually, these drives do come up on the desktop as well. Perhaps there is some incompatibility with this PCMCIA/USB thing and Ubuntu?

Did you navigate to the place /media ? It's a directory directly in the root (/) directory and it contains the mount points for temporary drives, like USB, memory cards etc. I didn't get you rcomment about a camera, is one involved here?

"Places" > Home is just a way to start the exploring; you need to navigate "up" to the root directory and then into the /media directory.
