Microsoft Windows operating systems such as Windows 2000 and Windows XP were released with a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) driver built into them. Because of this, no other device driver is required for a mass storage–compliant device to work on these operating systems. To achieve functionality beyond what the default Windows MSC drivers provide, Cypress offers a proprietary Mass Storage Class driver.

The Cypress USB Mass Storage Class Driver is compatible with Windows 2000 and Windows XP. This application note describes the features available in the Cypress driver, identifies the files included with the driver, describes how to get a digital signature, and shows how the driver can be customized.
