Changing removable media property RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have custom USB mass storage device whose firmware mistakenly identifies itself as fixed not removable. Took a look at Hitachi cfadisk.c filter driver that filters IOCTL_QUERY_STORAGE_PROPERTY which does the reverse, i.e., presents a removable device as fixed device. Was unable to adapt cfadisk.c to Windows 7 because of Microsoft policy barring such drivers for security reasons. Burned MSDN tech support incident to get the bad news. Do I have any other alternatives? Is there source available for mass storage device drivers that I can adapt for my custom USB mass storage device? All I want to do is tell Windows that my custom USB mass storage device is removable. Thanks.
