    USB port "monitor"

    I was looking for drivers for nokia ngage for linux but without results... then I was wondering wheter it 'd be possible to program something on my own
    I have no previous experience with any printer/paraller/usb port programming so it's a chance for me to learn something :]
    My idea is: get a program to watch what is sent to/received from usb port in windows and then deduce what to send in order to get some info :>
    I know it's a "little" hardcore but I'd like to do this for fun
    So the question is: Is there any program which could watch/monitor what is sent to usb port and then printing it on the screen[console] under windows? If it's quite short you may post the source here or link to it...


    P.s. I know it's a weired idea

    If this wasn't your first thought

    Practice until it is.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
