I don't know about your usb stick, but android devices now use mtp (since ice cream sandwich), which is a Windows 'media transfer protocol' and a pain for linux machines to detect. Here's a place to start:

I take it you've looked in your /media directory using a file manager. You may have set your desktop settings so that a usb drive doesn't automatically show up on your desktop.
