udev rules aimed for USB drives only
 
I have written a udev rule as follows:

Code:

RUN+=/.../.../example.sh
Whenever i plug in a USB drive, this rule is executed, however it is also done when i plug in a dongle for WiFi. How do i make this udev rule specific for USB drives only. In other words this script should be run for USB devices only.

As part of the rule you might specify:
Code:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb"
but the WiFi dongle is also a USB device, isn't it?

This might help:
Code:

ATTRS{product}=="Mass Storage Device"
reported from udevinfo (or udevadm info).

So a rule might include this to match only Mass Storage Devices.
