Say, I'm looking to have a DVR Write-it data files through a USB port attached. This is a very simple DVR and to my knowledge, does not offer a way to access the data on its hard drive. The only way is to connect in a USB drive to the USB port.
My thinking is to connect a USB cable from the USB port directly into a regular PC (OS XP). A software driver would be required to emulate a USB hard drive on this port. The DVR would then effectively be writing to a hard drive, partition, on the PC but this would be accessible. Do you have any suggestions?
