The most general way - -

Use the kernel message buffer display and clear command:
sudo dmesg -c

Change something in the hardware set-up (as plug in a usb device).

Use the kernel message buffer display command:

Code:
core2quad ~ $ dmesg

Which is the kernel reporting that a Kindle in "Storage device mode" has just been added to the system.

See the next to last line above?
That means the Kindle storage device is now known as /dev/sde1 (in this specific example - names are dynamic - yours might be different).
