Command line version of Hardware Browser?

Is there a command line (terminal) version of the Hardware Browser?

I need to determine what the system names a SCSI DVD drive at a remote site that only has a command line version of linux(kernel 2.6.7).

On my PC the name from the Hardware Browser, /dev/scd0, does not match what I see when I use dmsg, sr0.

cdrecord -scanbus does not list the device name.

lspci is a cool tool but only lists the device on the PCI bus. It sees the SCSI Controller but not devices attached to the SCSI bus.
