    Question persistent name of SD card

    SD memory card is inserted to internal slot of my server. Sometimes when I boot, this card is /dev/sda, sometimes it's /dev/sdi. Is any way to completly define name of usb card?

    It will be great if all internal hard drives would be sda, sdb, ... sdh, and any usb devices would be sdi(SD card), sdj(my USB key) and others...

    Doesn't it automatically mount to the "/media/*" directory? I think the "udev" daemon, and the "gvfs" application handles all of that for you. Usually, the device's UUID is recognized and it is assigned the same file in the /dev directory, unless you have been plugging in so many different devices that they have run out of letters.

    introductory udev stuff has a pretty good tutorial on doing udev rules for this.
