lsusb will show you what is connected to which port. If it can't find lsusb, you will have to apt-get the package that has it (sorry, not sure of the name). You may need to be root for lsusb to be pathed.

Mount it. It will be assigned a device number by the kernel (usually /dev/sd<number>, which you can see by reading through the output of dmesg.
