that's the first hit I got on google for 
Silicon Integrated Systems Corp.Super Flash 1G  B Flash Drive

I wonder if the problem is that the device is USB 2 and you have only USB
1 on your machine? Do you see any output when you plug it in and then issue

dmesg | tail       ?

For comparison purposes when I plug in my 1GB USB stick I get

$ dmesg | tail

This tells me that the device has been automatically mounted
as /dev/sda1 , and it appears as /media/usbdisk when nautilus pops up
( also automatically)

It also appears in "Computer" - in my case as "USBDisk RunDisk: usbdisk"
