I cannot figure out why this rule wont fire:

ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="sdb", SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", ATTRS{model}=="Elements 1048*", RUN+="/usr/bin/mysync.sh"

here is the additional info

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. Please, could you put some of your time to read What should I do when someone answers my question? –  Sylvain Pineau Apr 28 at 10:27

1 Answer 1

Try with "sdb*" as suggested in these usb automount rules.

Also be sure to ensure your /usr/bin/mysync.sh is marked executable, an that it starts with an appropriate shebang (e.g. #!/bin/sh)
