    If the sda device isnt detected at boot, its impossible to "load", the correct word would be "mount".

    This is due to the fact taht Linux doesnt actually see the drive as external device, it includes it into the current configuration.

    Ok,
    The problem occurs when I try to insert my USB drive after logging on. The system cannot detect it fdisk -l doesn't show the USB drive, but it shows all the other system drives. That was why I was wondering if it was possible to create an sda file which would point to /proc/bus/usb (the location of the USB hub on which the drive is connected to).

    Is there any way to accomplish this?
