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