USBDeview is a small utility that lists all USB devices that currently connected to your computer, as well as all USB devices that you previously used.
For each USB device, exteneded information is displayed: Device name/description, device type, serial number (for mass storage devices), the date/time that device was added, VendorID, ProductID, and more...
USBDeview also allows you to uninstall USB devices that you previously used, and disconnect USB devices that are currently connected to your computer.
You can also use USBDeview on a remote computer, as long as you login to that computer with admin user.
USBDeview is a small portable utility that can list all of the USB devices that are connected in your PC or previously used ones along with some very useful extra information. For instance you can know an USB device's description, if it's connected, if it's safe to unplug, if it's disabled, it's creation date, class, subclass, protocol and more. Basically all there is know is there. Besides giving info USBDeview can also disconnect, disable, enable and even uninstall an USB device from Windows entirely which is better compared to the usual way of doing it in Windows XP. The last feature that is want to talk about is the capacity of USBDeview of executing a batch file when an USB is inserted, this could be pretty handy in some situations, tough i can't think of any right now.
In conclusion USBDeview is simple and works so if you need an app like this one give it a try. Available for Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista.
