Hello all,
My internal DVD burner has crapped out and I bought an external USB drive. It says it's compatible with linux and I can see it in my dmesg when it's plugged in, but I can't seem to find out what exactly it's being named (ie, /dev/sda3, etc). The machine is running gentoo. Here is the end of my dmesg:
Code:
usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

I think once someone points me in the right direction as to the name of this device in the /dev folder I should be good. dmesg is showing the right model number and everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
