    Use Dev viewer.exe to find device id or go through this below steps........



    A device ID is the most specific ID for a device. Devices can have either a specific device ID or a more generic ID. For example, you can specify all USB devices that use one device ID or you can choose one specific removable USB disk drive. You must use the device IDs for the devices that you want to add. You can use either the Symantec DevViewer tool or you can use the Windows Device Manager to get the device IDs. 

    The following is a sample device ID:

    You do not have to type the entire string. You can use wildcard characters to
    search for device IDs. For example, you can use the following string in a search:

    To obtain a device ID from Control Panel

    1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Settings > Control Panel > System.
    2. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.
    3. In the Device Manager list, double-click the device.
    4. In the device's Properties dialog box, on the Details tab, select the Device ID.
      By default, the Device ID is the first value displayed.
    5. Press Control+C to copy the ID string.
    6. Click OK or Cancel.
