If it opens -> it must be same device as drive X: -> do not mount as directory, only as an uaehf.device unit. If it does not open -> it is not same drive -> mount as a directory.

This does not solve the problem of not being able to match device names to drive letter(s).

ADDED: I guess this can be solved by comparing serial numbers but there are filesystem serial numbers, volume serial numbers and drive serial numbers, not yet sure how to find correct serial numbers..
I'm probably not understanding this. Is it a problem that during boot up you have to match the drive letter to the device name and you don't once the emulator is up and running?
