Not to sure if this helps. if you run lsblk it will list devices
connected to the system, just plugged in a usb flash disk and it showed
sdg 8:96 1 3.8G 0 disk
├─sdg1 8:97 1 640M 0 part /media/psutton/Rescatux0.51b3
└─sdg2 8:98 1 704K 0 part
from the man page (man lsblk)
lsblk - list block devices
Worth a try
if you run
lsblk | tee lsblkoutput.txt
Output will be directed to the console AND the file lsblkoutput.txt.
Hope this helps
