I don't have one of those drives at the moment, but on my system I
typically have usb-common, usb-core, and usb-storage.  Only thing I use
sg for is burning CD's/DVD's.  You didn't mention this specifically, so
for what it's worth I access such devices as /dev/sd* just like I would
any other internal drive.
