Two different ways to do this (there are probably more than two, these
are just the two off of the top of my head):
run this command:
dmesg | less
and look for hd or sd entries. If you new disk is SATA or SCSI, it
will start with sd, not hd.
sudo apt-get install lshw
sudo lshw -class disk
This should list all of the disks in your machine.
Hope this helps.
