RE: USB device installation problem

Windows records each device plugged into the USB interface in the
registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB. There
you will see a series of keys which names like Vid_049f&Pid_0056. The
key underneath will have a DESC entry which will describe the device's
friendly name.

As far as listing when and how many times they have been inserted, I
don't know anywhere that is listed.

Subject: USB device installation problem

Hello All,

Currently, USB usage becomes one of the most important part in Windows
systems. If I would like to check how many USB external storage has been
inserted to the computer before and when is they have been inserted and
removed, is there any way I can check that from registry? or is there
other location I can find that?

Please advise.
