    Hello

    How can I decode/extract information from this device path returned by
    SetupDiXXXX() ?

    From enuming DISKs:
    \\?\usbstor#disk&ven_sigmatel&prod_mscn&rev_0001#012345678901&0#{53f56307-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}

    From enuming VOLUMEs:
    \\?\storage#removablemedia#7&1d086a37&0&rm#{53f5630d-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}

    I notice this "{53f5630d-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}" GUID in common, what
    does it stand for?

    Are the preceding pathes in a standard format, can I always link between a
    disk and a volume by matching for equal GUIDs?

    Regards,
    Elias

    it's seems to be a registry path.
    have a glance to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum
