Basically there's files I need that are on a laptop harddrive. The drive itself is out of the laptop and connected to my desktop via a USB connector. Basically this should make the drive virtually the same as a USB drive. However, it won't mount on my computer, I don't know how to force mount it since I don't know what dev it is.

lsusb gives me


Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 152d:2338 JMicron Technology Corp. / JMicron USA Technology Corp. JM20337 Hi-Speed USB to SATA & PATA Combo Bridge
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0bda:8189 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Network Adapter

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

and I can see the drive as "usb drive" under places/computer

any ideas?
