I did this on several devices: from /dev/sda to /dev/sdz it always just 
returns without response. I do this as root.

I also tried fdisk -l /dev/sda1 through 10 and sdb1 through 10. No response.

I have no idea which device to look to. usbview can locate the device 
fine, no problem. As you saw in the previous, I just don't know what 
device to use in order to mount it.

Is there some kind of scan program, that tells me which scsi devices are
