Command to show connected devices?


Hi,

So far, i used 'hard drake' to determine the device names that are give to my connected devices so i can mount them. If i don't have hard drake installed, is there a built in command to show connected devices?

thnx

I do not know exactly what you mean, but maybe try
cat /proc/pci
cat /proc/partitions
cat /proc/devices
you can also look into /dev

You can't find your usb cdrw because usb cdrw is not supported under linux.....yet, usb cdrom is supported with the usb mass stroage modules so you can only use your device to read ATM.

If you want mounted devices as opposed to connected devices:

df

Which of course won't show an empty cdrom, nor will it show a cdrom with a music CD in it. Its also only going to display data storage devices.

Cheers,
