I'd suggest, that you need to always be extra careful regarding devices.

You can use
Code:
ls -lA /dev/disk/by-uuid
or
Code:
ls -lA /de/disk/by-id
in order to see where the symlinks point (e.g. to /dev/sdc).
UUID
will not work for Amiga partitions. Using
ID
is not great idea either, since depending on the card reader/slot identifier will change. That's why I would suggest to be extra careful there and check twice, before doing anything reckless to your system/drives.
