Imagine I have a new device which it's not working on Linux. I get its device ID with lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID1164:7efdYUAN High-Tech Development Co., Ltd

Imagine I know that this device will work with this firmware /lib/firmware/dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw

Then I would like to create a rule or something that could tell the operating system that the device 1164:7efd must be loaded with the firmware dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw

I just want to link the device ID with the firmware, so my device will work. Is there any way to do that?

This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! – Eric Carvalho Mar 13 '13 at 18:34
