I am running a Ubuntu 11 guest on a Windows XP host with VMware. I want to format an SD card in Ubuntu, but I can't figure out which
/dev/xxx device the SD card is.
I plug the card into the built-in socket of my laptop. I "safely remove" the device in Windows. Then, I "connect" the PCMCIA reader in VMware. Now, I was supposed to see a new device like
/dev/sdx, but it doesn't appear.
How can I find what the name of my USB device's name and mount it?
/var/log/message is empty.
Here is the output of dmesg:
[ 5268.927308] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device number 12 using uhci_hcd
And, here are the last lines of
Oct 31 18:51:21 ubuntu kernel: [ 5268.927308] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device number 12 using uhci_hcd
