Configuring a USB device in assembly language!
OK let me start from the beginning. I'm doing a final project for school where I am controlling a robotic device hooked up to a parallel port. I want to be able to control it with my USB controller through an assembly language program. The reason being is that it has been done with a past project in my class, but they used a standard joystick hooked up to a gameport. My laptop doesn't have a gameport, and also my teacher said he would like to see someone use the USB port this year because it hasn't been done in his class yet. I want to know if it is possible to do through DOS with assembly language or do you have to use Windows XP since windows is what recognizes the hardware, assuming it is all possible in the first place.
All help appreciated. Thanks!!!
a little brown-nosing goes a long way!
Technically it should be possible - the USB headers are configured in the BIOS and should be available in Dos (I say should be because I have never tried it).
Thats quite a nice question there, what processor are you using? Most of the Assembly language I do is using the Motorolla 68000...
when there are limited replies to a topic it usually suggests that no-one here is able to answer your question. Google yeilds wonderful results usually.
I started doing some research on a similar topic a while back in preparation for uni final project ideas, and was directed here for information. Hope it helps
