I have a relatively short question concerning USB device handling: How is it possible to map a USB device to a fixed device.

I know there are ways using udev rules, but I want complete instructions showing how to do it and what tools to use (if there are any). So show me how you would map the following USB drives to a fixed device.


Bus 002 Device 003: ID 1058:1110 Western Digital Technologies, Inc.

should go to:


1 USB flash drive

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1b1c:1ab1 <- unknown vendor, actually its CORSAIR VOYAGER

should go to:


If you use UUIDs or Volume Labels, you don't need fixed device names.


You could use udev rules to manually force the device IDs etc...
