Thanks for the reply
I already went to the offsite host and found that when I plugged the USB
device in I could see some info in /proc/bus/usb/devices
I took a swag and tried to mount /dev/sdb1 to /mnt/usb which worked like
a charm. The drive has a fat32 partition and I didnt have to do
anything more than mount it and cp files around.
Next time I will take your suggestion and look under /proc/scsi so maybe
I won't have to guess on the next system.
