I remember in Snow Leopard, when usb is connected, it will automatically show in the desktop. once I did clean install of lion, I do not get this feature anymore. Any idea how?

Click on Finder icon, go into Preferences> General and make sure 'Show all Discs etc' are all selected.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
