Erm -- this looks like it's a device to mount different sorts of media
(CompactFlash, SD, etc.) Is it anything like this:
http://www.mymediagear.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=59&products_id=83&osCsid=149acb156b1648c54fd0308416589877

In which case, it probably has four slots for the different media types,
and these show up as different devices in Linux. Which one you use would
depend on what sort of media you were trying to read -- all I can
suggest is trial and error.

Try for sdb, sdc and sdd. Try 
fdisk -l /dev/sdx
in case the medium comes with a partition table.

Good luck!

James.
