I don't think this has been mentioned here recently, so here goes: a
sure fire way of seeing whether Linux can recognise your USB connected
device and of finding out what it is called is to run the following

	tail -f /var/log/messages

as root or via sudo before plugging in the USB device. "tail -f" watches
the end of /var/log/messages and displays lines written to it as they
are written, so its easy to see the device connect, what type of driver
is assigned to it and what device name gets assigned to it.

After you've seen what you wanted, stop "tail -f " by typing Ctrl-C.

Bootnote: tail, when run without any options, lists the last 10 lines in
a file and exits - the -f option tells it to keep watching to file and
displaying new lines as they are written to the file.
