usb_device_id for Belkin F5U002 in uss720

Hi everyone,

I am new to Linux device driver and have this question..

I have a Belkin F5U002 USB Parallel Port adapter and would like to use the uss720 device driver for it.

From /proc/bus/usb/devices, the Device_ID for Belkin F5U002 is 0x050d:0x0002.

T: Bus=05 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 4 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=050d ProdID=0002 Rev= 2.02
S: Manufacturer=Belk USB Printing Support
S: Product=IEEE-1284 Controller

But in the uss720 code, the usb_device_id has an entry for Belkin as 0x1293:0x0002.

0x050d is actually 1293 in decimal. I could not get this device driver to recognize the Belkin cable, and wonder if this could be the cause of problem, where the value should be 1293 decimal (0x50d) but instead was being used as a hex value in the usb_device_id table? Does anyone have some pointers on what I can try? Thank you.
