    Its a HID class device with keyboard, mouse and some few other custom
    operations with USB interface with the system.

    The Firmware defines the reports needed for these functionalities and
    the system driver also has the knowledge of these reports. Also, there
    is a customization of the data received by this driver - ex, pointer
    modifications based on the monitor size for instance...

    Should I be writing a HID mini driver or HID filter driver ?

  2. what is the total list of data changes you want to make? you can easily
    write a mouse filter to modify pointer data

    I have decided to write a HIDmini driver since there are lot more
    buttons and actions for this custom device (its like a wireless device
    which acts like a pointing device and key board etc) along with
    customization of the report data I get from the firmware...So even
    though its a HID class planning to define a custom subclass.. I hope i'm
    on the right direction.
