    Is it possible to set up an USB device to use the HID class driver (with
    restriction) without providing a HID minidriver? If so, what should I do?

    Thank you in advance.

  2. A HID device has to expose a HID descriptor and respond to the requests
    a HID device gets.
    A minidriver is the only software way. Better change the device
    firmware. HID minidrivers are prone to errors and even WHQL testing does
    not find all bugs (proved with Logitech and Kensington mouse drivers).

    Yes. Simply declare the device as being of the HID class in your
    descriptors. John Hyde's book "USB Design by Example" explains what to do in
    great detail.
