Hmm, I do have entry points on my /etc/fstab for the usb device, but
of course they depend on the devices been mapped to /dev/sd*. The
problem is that there's no /dev/sd* at all, so the mount entries I
have under /etc/fstab are useless (of course if they are tried, the
error about the "/dev/sd*" not present will immediately show up,
that's how I found this)... The problem is not a renaming one either,
since there's no device to pick...
