Instead of looking for hardcoded names, look under /dev/disk/by-id so you can
see your disks by id. Or if they have labels /dev/disk/by-label etc.

I plugged in two usb sticks and invoked 'ls /dev/disk/by-id'.
A list appeared referring to the first stick as

usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0
usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0-part1

and to the second stick as

usb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0
usb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0-part1

But that does not give me access to the sticks since these names
are completely useless because they are no directory names. In
other words,
neither /dev/usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0
nor /dev/usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0-part1
nor /dev/usb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0
nor /dev/sb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0-part1
nor /dev/disk/usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0
nor /dev/disk/usb-Generic_USB_Flash_Disk_00000000000064-0:0-part1
nor /dev/disk/usb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0
nor /dev/disk/sb-058f_Spaceloop_8GB_E7B24B26-0:0-part1
exists.

Anyway thank you, even though your information did not help.

Bye,
Wolfgang
