Mounting usb drive on iMX6

Hi All,

I am trying to read content of usb thumb drive when inserted into USB hub interface of the board. After boot up I could see /dev/sda and /dev/sda1. So I understood that I can mount the partition and then read the files from partition. But after I run mount command (mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/xyz) it does mount (there is no error), but mounted folder does not show anything, which is not what I expected.

Is My understanding correct in that I expected mount to work.

I planned to write a application to read/open the content (image) of the pen drive. But now, it is not mounting and I am not sure what to do next.

Any help here will be good and to clarify my understanding.

Thanks and regards,

KK
