Table 1-1 Comparison of Manual and Automatic Mounting of Removable Media
If the media contains a file system and a label, the media label name is used to name the /media/pathname mount point. If a label is not present, the disk model name is used to name the media, such as /media/cdrom. A generic nickname is used only for legacy symbolic links. For example, /rmdisk/rmdisk0.
If your system has more than one type of removable device, see the following table for their access points.
Table 1-2 How to Access Data on Removable Media
You can use the rmmount -l command to identify mounted media on your system. For example:
