Except on *nix, where /dev contains device files, which are not just
run-of-the-mill files. This question has nothing to do with php (you
should NOT be making device files with php!).

/dev/sdb by it's name will typically refer to a block implementation
of a SCSI disk, or a device which ends up using the SCSI drivers, such
as USB drives. The various partitions on the device will then be
represented by /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdb2, etc
