Oh sorry, took a while.....
Here it is: http://snr-solutions.de/Computer/usbsnoop.log.gz
I had some problems to record this file. UsbSnoop starts recording at 
system startup. So there are many lines before scanning in this file and 
file size is >400Mb (unpacked)!

Sorry, I tried it several times but it seems that UsbSnoop is not longer 
compatible with WinXP' newer patches (I use a very clean system, because 
I do not work with Winstone!).

So stef, I hope You can find any information in this file You need.....

Kind regaards
