I think labeling will be better and then access the /media/XYZ name. I do this with my USB and SD cards. It makes life much easier. Then it doesn't matter what port they are plugged into or for that matter, what computer as they are always the same at work or home.


Thanks everyone. I didn't know the /dev/disk/by-* thing existed. I went with the labeling method. I put a label on my drive using /sbin/e2label /dev/sdb1 fd-usb-backup. On boot I now get the symlink /dev/disk/by-label/fd-usb-backup pointing to ../../sdb1 and I mount using the symlink name. Just what I was looking for!
