usb stick doesn't mount

After automounting for months suddenly it refuses to mount when inserted. 
The hard drive light flashes briefly as it always has but nothing further 
happens. It doesn't appear to be a hardware problem because it automounts 
in Fedora and Debian which I also have installed.

Is there a manual method to mount it? There is nothing in mtab about 
it that the system can read so I'm at a loss.

Forums, list archives, and search engines have turned nothing useful. Any 
help on how to proceed appreciated. Thanks.
