Am trying to mount an old BusLink USB drive but can't determine what device the USB drive is connected to, that is, the device that I'd pass to the mount command. I tried "fdisk -l" but it only appears to show my other internal HDs.
Here is one (though unsexy) way to do it:
(1) Press M-C-F1 (Ctrl+Alt+F1) on your keyboard
(2) Plug in your stick
If something is popping up on your screen...maybe your are lucky.
Doing things mentioned above on my system I see things like
SCSI device sdb:...
From that stick I know that I can mount it by the command
'mount /dev/sdb1 /path/to/where/I/want/to/have/it'
Hope that helps.
