Is it possible to send windows file from PC to FX3 DVK REV3 board on usb3.0 ??

as per  cyusb. pdf  

The CYUSB3.SYS driver is licensed for distribution ONLY with Cypress USB products and

products that employ Cypress USB chips.

CYUSB3.SYS is a USB device driver for 32 bit Windows XP, 32/64 bit Windows Vista, 32/64 bit

Windows 7 and 32/64 bit Windows 8 Beta that is capable of communicating with any USB 2.0 and

USB3.0 compliant devices. The driver is general-purpose, understanding primitive USB commands, but

not implementing higher-level, USB device-class specific commands. For this reason, the driver is not

capable, for instance, of interfacing a USB mass storage class device to the Windows file system.

Please note that this release doesn't include the USB3.0 bulk streaming interface.

 and one more thing is it possible to do the same in case of FX3 board configured as a usb2.0?? because winxp must have installed HID & MASS storage classes driver

If you've implemented mass storage class firmware on FX3 then you'll be able to send files by connecting to Windows mass storage driver. You can look at our FX2LP based NX2LP-Flex kit to get a better understanding of what I'm talking about

Even if you don't implement mass storage class you can send files using CyUSB3.sys. But in this case you'll have to implement your own custom protocol so that what is sent on one side is understandable on the other side. Especially if you're storing it in a storage of some kind it has to be stored in a file system format which means you'll have write code to take care of that part as well (will be a crazy idea).
