  • [SOLVED] usb genenic HID keeps appearing as mouse

    I took the usbd_hid_generic example and replaced the mouse functionality by consumer device control functionality.

    (volume up/down, play/pause etc). Then I flashed this modified example on a 52840 dongle and put it into my Windows laptop. No matter what I tried, it kept appearing as non-functional mouse. It took quite some time to realize: Windows remembers the device!

    When I changed ProductID it was finally recognized as consumer device control - and then I found

    "...Open Device Manager and click View > Show hidden devices. You will now see every USB drive or SD card that Windows knows about, whether currently connected or not, listed under Disk drives. Right-click on one to uninstal it."
