Device status?


is there a way or command to monitor which devices are currently connected to the system when they are not mounted.
e.g. i want to plug a usb device into my computer but don't know which device it is to mount... or a IEEE1394 device... or anything else...

as i know usb storage can be mounted as scsi drive. so try to mount first scsi drive /dev/sda1
i dont know if there is a software can detect unmounted devices. but "fdisk -l /dev/hd..." will show partions of the device.

alright, thanks....
so how would you mount devices if you don't know your /dev/XXX well?
i suppose its kind of a black art.
