How to define PnP Device would Storage Device?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by Michael Grabelkovsky, Mar 16, 2006.

  1. If new device is plugged in, how to define would it storage device?
    Is it possible defining storage device by its HardwaerID?
    Other ways such as ComaptibleIDs etc?

    If DiskOnKey is plugged in, it
    ....\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR\Enum receive the new record with
    DeviceID. The "USBSTOR" maps USB disk devices. Every device is enumed in
    USBSTOR is storage device.

    The problem:
    "Suspicious" busses: USB, 1394, PCMCIA, Bluetooth (Services: USBSTOR,
    sbp2port etc.) What else?
    "Suspicious" devices: Disk, CD/DVD, Floppy. What else?
    Any combination is possible. For example, USB connected CDROM... :(

    I'd prefer to define storage device by HardwareID or other enumeration
