USB descriptor debugging

Started by Richard Henry January 12, 2006
I'm thinking someone must have developed a Windows/USB debugging tool that
can read out the descriptor data downloaded from connected devices.

Anyone know of such a tool?

Windows use to ship with usbview.exe on the disk (maybe it still does?) If you would like a copy send me an email to jamcquay(at)sympatico.ca Jamie

"USB View" free from MS. Idiot proof but gives very limited info. "USB Snoopy" free from the web somewhere. Nice tool, not intuitive to set up but works ok, must do considerable parsing of data presented. JJS

I'm quite happy with http://www.hhdsoftware.com/usbmon.html. I've also found http://www.thesycon.de/eng/usbio.shtml very handy when working with USB. S.E.
Thanks to all who made suggestions.  As it turned out, we used USBView to
look at the downloaded descriptors, found a few problems, fixed them, and
everything is working now.

Well, not everything...
