Which node?

How can I find out which node in /dev is created when I plug in some device like USB modem or stick? There is nothing in dmesg.

dmesg should show it. Are you using udev? (Most modern distros do)

You can also look and see how /proc/partitions changes.

Yes, Arch uses udev. No there are no any information about node in dmesg, at least not for usb modem. For example, when I plug my usb modem I get next lines at the end of dmesg :

usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
