Dear Friends,

I am writing an application which should read from and write to USB port. But I dont know how to access it. I also can buy an OCX module if there is one. But at firsthand I want to acess it by my codes. I'll be happy to receive any codes or part of codes that will give insight.

I also appreciate any comments

Thanks in advance

USB has not a 'generic' driver. Will depend on which device are you trying to interface to. So, please detail.

I want to use it for a scale machine and also for a digital camera to take pictures.

You will need specific drivers for each device, I guess scale driver could have an internal serial-to-usb converter, so you can program it as a serial device. Most cameras act as a standard USB harddisk.
