don't really understand what you are asking.

/dev/sda refers to the first fixed disk

/dev/sda1 refers to the first partition of the first disk
/dev/sda2 second, first

You open terminal and type there "mount". It should list all your partitions and their mount points. Look for line with your "/media/disk" in it and then you can read what file system, uuid and /dev/sd_ it has.

Good luck!
