Trying to mount a harddisk connected with a IDE/Sata USB hub.
Lsusb tells me : Bus 001 Device 005: ID 152d:2338 JMicron Technology Corp. /
JMicron USA Technology Corp. JM20337 Hi-Speed USB to SATA & PATA Combo Bridge

Trying to mount this piece of hardware I get the following information:

# mount /dev/bus/usb/001/005 /mnt
mount: /dev/bus/usb/001/005 is not a block device

Obviously; you have to give a device name like sdb, sdc, etc.


Just look at the last lines of /var/log/messages, or the output of dmesg: it will say the device name. Then you have to find out the partition number.

But typically the desktop (kde, gnome) will offer to mount it automatically.
