USB forensics from image

I know there are a number of tools that can be run over live systems (i.e. Nirsoft USBDeview), but for sitations where you just have an image of a PC/Laptop, what files can be copied out from the image, and what tools can produce the same results as Nirsoft USBDeview to get a report of all USB drives/phones plugged into a machine). I cant see any option in the Nirsoft tool to import a file from an image to produce a similar report.

Check the website documentation for Nirsoft's tool and it will tell you which registry files it needs. SYSTEM and NTUSER.DAT, I think. It will also give you the syntax for running it against extracted files.

Also check out USBDeviceForensics. I like it a little more than the Nirsoft tool. It pulls from USRCLASS, as well, puts everything together nicely.
