You don't say which OS you run, so just do 'fdisk -l' to find out

it.

That is a good way. Best run it also before to be able to compare what was
added. On some machines it can be confusing.

I usually run dmesg to see if the USB device was properly detected and what
actual disks and partitions where discovered.

fdisk is more precise there because it shows what is a partition and what
not. Sometimes /dev/sdb is the device to be mounted and sometimes it is
/dev/sdf1.

fdisk -l did not give me any information about the USB device but your dmesg
gave me following:

[10628.006088] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdh] Test WP failed, assume Write Enabled
[10628.007803] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdh] Asking for cache data failed

At least the drive is attached but does not seem to respond.
