USB CopyNES question about devices

Post by sleepy9090 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:24 pm

Hey all,
I starting writing a Java client for the USB CopyNES and was able to connect using an FTDI wrapper, however I don't understand something and was hoping someone could give me clarity.

When I scan the devices, it appears that I get results from two devices (USB CopyNES A & USB CopyNES B). I'm not sure why. Picture can best explain:

Anyone have anything I can read or explain to me so I can better understand. I haven't delved too far into it yet.
Thanks!

The USB CopyNES presents itself as two devices - one for control signals and one for data transfers. Take a look at the USB CopyNES source code (or the latest standard CopyNESW source code) to see how they're actually used.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
