NOTE - Please feel free to correct the title if it is not describing correctly what I am asking here.

What I want to know is, how can I know via Nautilus or a GUI app, the filesystem direction of a pen drive or external usb drive. For example, when I connect a external hard drive called "Mary". In Nautilus or looking at the properties of the device in Nautilus it mentions that is was mounted in /media/mary but I want to know if it is /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdc1, etc...

If I understand it correctly try...

  • dmesg |grep -i 'SCSI device'

You can also find devices by id, path and uuid with ...

  • ls /dev/disk/by-id

  • ls /dev/disk/by-path

  • ls /dev/disk/by-by-uuid

(in case the 1st one was not the one you are looking for).
