It would probably help to have .config and lsmod details.

$ lsmod
$ cat /boot/config | grep -v "^#" | grep -v "^$"

That being said, the device it is associated with should appear in /proc/partitions, if everything is right/working.

$ cat /proc/partitions

Assuming udev created the device of course.  Or the device otherwise exists through devfs or mknod.  Which is some of the difficulty I've had in the past with usb-storage devices.  Having the modules load at boot seems to help with that.  If it doesn't exist, you can get some of the details of what to create it with from /proc/devices (major numbers for type) and /proc/misc (minor numbers for major 10).  There's some kernel configurations that put usb-storage devices on /dev/ub?# (or similar, been a while) as opposed to the expected /dev/sd?# we're used to.  Either way, if the device exists and is mountable it should show up in /proc/partitions.

Just remember to get all of the parts loaded before it will work.  sg, sd_mod, scsi_mod, sr_mod, usb-storage, uhci/ohci, ehci, usbcore, vfat, yada yada yada.  If any one part is missing it may not work, or work as expected.  Module names do vary between kernel versions so it's not an exact science.  Beyond that your previous details didn't seem to indicate that anything was wrong or missing.  But it's hard to tell with the missing details.
