The 'mount -a' command will only mount those filesystems
identified in /etc/fstab. And typically you would not put
a USB device in /etc/fstab. Have you identified the USB
drive in that file? If so, how do you ensure that the drive
always has the same device filename every time?

Admittedly, I do not have a lot of experience mounting
a removable device at boot time, so this message may not
be of much help.
