- Subject: devices and mount points
Is there an easy way to discover what device is mounted to what drive?
Specifically, I have a CD drive. If I put a CD into the drive, I can
access it at the filesystem level as /cygdrive/d/. However, mount does not
tell me what device the CD drive is. It only says d: is mounted on
/cygdrive/d/. I eventually discovered that is was /dev/scd4, but not
before trying devices /dev/scd[0-3].
To get a list of all devices I tried 'ls -la /dev/*' but that did not work.
I also searched the archives using "CD device" and "/dev/ mount" but did
not see anything relevant.
