For me dmesg shows the following:
Vendor: Sony Model: MSC-U03 Rev: 1.00
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
And these work:
dmesg | grep -A3 'Sony' | grep 'Attached'
The following might work for you:
dmesg | grep -A3 'M-Systems' | grep 'Attached'
To reply remove 's' from address
