USB read data

Dear Friends;
 
I want to read USB data from any known or unknown USB device. for example I want to read USB data from USB mass storage devices or read from unknown programmer devices that use USB connection for communication to PC.
 
Is this possible?
 
Is there a way to read USB data as easily as read serial ports data?
 
Can I listening or spying USB ports via reading it?
 
If I can please help me about it.
 
Thank you.

Re: USB read data

Do you have a driver for the device? That's the easiest way to do it. Otherwise, you have to resort to USB RAW. See here and here.

Re: USB read data

Hi ,

 

I know it has been some time since you posted this thread. I came across it as I also faced the same problem. I'm a beginner in LabView but I need to learn to use it for my school project and urgently needed a solution. I need to connect a USB device to my laptop. This device acts as a receiver that constantly receives signal(waveform) from elsewhere. I want to know how am I going to receive and display the signal using LabView. I have my device driver as well. Pls tell me a way how to go about this. Thanks so much for your help.

Re: USB read data

Is this the same question you asked here? Basically what Dennis said is the same thing I would say: what information/software library did the vendor provide? Please continue the discussion in your original thread.
