Default trying to understand command

#mkdir /mnt/flashdrive
#newfs -t msdos sd0c
#mount /dev/sd0i /mnt/flashdrive

I am trying to mount a flashdrive to openBSD. I am trying to understand why the above works. First, how do I find what device the flashdrive is, i.e. "sd0c"?

Second, when I go to mount using /dev/sd0i why does "sd0c" change to "sd0i"?
