Question udev rules all_partitions doesn't work

I am trying to create rules for my usb flash devices.

This is the rules file:

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{size}=="2051809", SYMLINK+="mp3man%n", OPTIONS+="all_partitions"
BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{size}=="255704", SYMLINK+="univadis%n", OPTIONS+="all_partitions"

When I plug in my mp3player /dev/mp3man is created but there is no /dev/mp3man1

Similarly when I plug in my memory stick /dev/univadis is created but no /dev/univadis1

So I cannot mount it ( unless I go to sdc1 which defeats the object of the exercise.

I have also tried

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{size}=="2051809", NAME(all_partitions)="mp3man%n"

with the same result.

What do I do to get mp3man1 created?

And the answer is....

The rules were written incorrectly because I had followed the instruction on

and used

udevinfo -a -p /sys/block/sdc


gives the instruction as

udevinfo -a -p /sys/block/sdc/sdc1

Using rules generated from this the all_partitions command is not needed.
