I just connected my BlackBerry to Linux via USB cable. How do I know which device in /dev it actually is?
If you execute
dmesg after plugging in your Blackberry, you'll get as output something like the following:
[33399.504750] sd 7:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk [33399.507712] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdd] Attached SCSI removable disk
sdd are the device node identifiers.
Or you can execute
hal-device to list all the devices.
ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/usb* to list all usb block devices.
lsusb command will help, it will list (
ls) the USB devices.
You can then compare the device number with the major and minor numbers in your /dev dir.
