The old way:

 $ ls /dev/sd* 

Another old way:

 $ fdisk --list 

An old way to see what you just plugged in:

 $ sudo dmesg | tail 

Some new tricks:

 $ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 2.7T 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 23.3G 0 part └─sda2 8:2 0 2.7T 0 part sdb 8:16 0 3.9G 0 disk sdc 8:32 0 111.8G 0 disk ├─sdc1 8:33 0 100M 0 part /boot/efi └─sdc2 8:34 0 111.7G 0 part / sdd 8:48 0 1.8T 0 disk ├─sdd1 8:49 0 120G 0 part /var ├─sdd2 8:50 0 120G 0 part /tmp ├─sdd3 8:51 0 60G 0 part /opt └─sdd4 8:52 0 1.5T 0 part /home sde 8:64 0 298.1G 0 disk ├─sde1 8:65 0 500M 0 part ├─sde2 8:66 0 296.8G 0 part └─sde3 8:67 0 826M 0 part sdf 8:80 0 931.5G 0 disk └─sdf1 8:81 0 931.5G 0 part sdg 8:96 1 7.5G 0 disk └─sdg1 8:97 1 7.5G 0 part 

User-friendly udisks:

 $ udisks --monitor /dev Ctrl-c $ udisk --enumerate | sort /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sda /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sda1 /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sda2 /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdb /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdc /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdc1 [...] $ udisks --mount /dev/sdc1 Mounted /dev/sdc1 on /media/mythumbdrive $ udisks --unmount /dev/sdc1
