If you want to known the drive name in the /dev/ folder, I normally

  • disconnect USB
  • in a terminal, type dmesg -w
  • insert USB

And the kernel will show some messages including the name of your device. Other options are

sudo blkid
sudo fdisk -l

And you may want to check this to mount it. How to access a usb flash drive from the terminal?
