You would not see it in /sys/block, block devices are disks. I used my hard drive as an off-the-cuff example of how to get the major/minor numbers. It might be found under /sys/class/tty/. It is full of virtual terminals which you can ignore, but will have serial ports as well.

Lots of devices these days include a little hard drive thing along with the device. It might have device drivers on it or promotional software. Or it might be something else entirely, when you can see the hardware the way Linux does some things just act strange.

Your system may not have a driver for that device, then. Or it may have a driver but not recognize that device as being compatible with it.

ya been hacking away here and that for sure is the problem.
I am going to look into devices allowing rs232-USB that have drivers for android readily availalble as this could be a long road.

I wonder if it has the FTDI driver built-in. Lots of things use it.
