We are developing a device running Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro and would like to use the USB filter to restrict the ability of using USB flash drives to one specific make and model of drive (there are good reasons for this which I won't go into here). The problem is that, as everyone knows, companies such as Kingston and Sandisk release new models of drives all the time. Therefore, if we "paired" a certain make and model flash drive with our device and that drive stopped being manufactured, we couldn't get a drive to work in our existing devices out in the field.
Is there some type of USB thumb drive that will always be manufactured? Or, is there some other solution?
