USB : USB Classes    USB Classes for Microcontrollers  

You may think you have conceived of a great new idea for using a Mass Storage Device to accept commands.  Instead of writing a Windows program to talk to your CDC, bulk, or HID device device, you figure you'll make your device a Mass Storage Device.

Then, to send commands to the device, you'll have your users put a set of commands into a little text file, and have them simply drag that text file onto your Mass Storage Device in Windows Explorer.  When your device receives the command file, it reads it and executes whatever command is inside it.

Great idea, huh?

Well, we wouldn't advise you to book your flight to the Nobel Prize award ceremony just yet...
