usb flash/pen drive does not mount

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
i have a lexar jumpdrive that won't mount in os x. i have a powerbook G4 15" titanium running 10.3.9. when i plug the drive in it doesn't show up on my Desktop or when i open the Macintosh HD icon. the drive is recognized in System Profiler but not in the Disk Utility. the drive works fine in other PCs and macs. when i type the command:

diskutil list

it does not show anything pertaining to my flash drive. any suggestions?

    What version of OS X are the other Macs running?

    i've had a similar problem. Mine won't show up when i have my keyboard and mouse plugged in, so basically it's the drive or the peripherals. Don't know if you have anything else plugged in or not. If so, try unplugging them, if not, nevermind.
