Hi again Waqas!

I was not in /proc when I did the grepped ls:
tod at tod-desktop:/dev$ ls | grep sd?
tod at tod-desktop:/dev$ ls | grep sd?
tod at tod-desktop:/dev$ pwd
tod at tod-desktop:/dev$

You may need to install it but lsusb would be a good tool for now.

Also, google "usb linux" and read up on it.  You sould find things
change in /var/log/syslog when you connect a usb device.

Good Hunting!
