what do the numbers mean?

when running cdrecord -scanbus

the output gives you something similar to (excuse me if the numbers are wrong... i'm not on my linux box at home at the moment):

0,0,0 cd burner

0,1,0 zip drive

0,2,0 flash pen drive

now if i mount the zip drive it's sda4/if i mount the pen drive it's sdb1.

my question is: what do the numbers mean... how do I translat 0,2,0 into sdb1. the only reason i know it's that one is cause i tried a bunch of them before i found it.

thanks for the help,

man cdrecord gives a pretty good explanation.
