I'm assuming "jump drive" is the same as "Thumb drive" :roll: , if so you will need to mount it to the file system tree, heres how to do it, first create a mount location ex: /mnt/usbdrive, then mount it, how you mount it will depend on how many usb devices you already have on the hub, but heres an example:

mkdir /mnt/usbdrive
mount -t msdos /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive
and that should mount it as the first USB device "sda1" and you can access the content on it by going to the /mnt/usbdrive folder then before removing the usb drive do the following:

umount /mnt/usbdrive

hope it helps...
