docking station & usb mass storage question

on my quest to transfer files to and from the pinephone i came across a post on a manjaro-arm forum that basically said use the docking station and a usb stick.

after connecting the usb to the docking station, i could find no way to access the device in 'index' file manager. after checking dmesg and seeing that sure enough it was there and up and running on sda1, i accessed it the old-fashioned way, creating a usb folder in 'home' and the 'mount' command on the terminal. i was just wondering if i hadn't misssed something? my linux mint automatically mounts my usb at /media or something like that.

and i must say that the docking station usb connection is extremely loose, it actually disconnected a couple of times while i was mounting my usb.
