Windows 7 device manager lists the same usb device as:

fwlanusb5
FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N v2
using the message from

TargetVendor=  0x057c
TargetProduct= 0x8401

MessageContent="5553424312345678000000000000061b000000ff0000000000000000000000"

i obviously made the classic mistake and forgot the "-I" when testing on the command line :oops:
I made a copy of the original file and adjusted it to the new v2 revision of the hardware.

filecontent of: 057c:62ff

Code: Select all

# AVM Fritz!Wlan USB Stick N v2

TargetVendor=  0x057c
TargetProduct= 0x8501

MessageContent="5553424312345678000000000000061b000000ff0000000000000000000000"

Thanks a lot for the report!

I'm actually thinking about reversing the logic of the -I parameter in future releases ...

The new AC 430 uses the same id for the cdrom mode but comes out as pid 8502 in the end, would that cause any issues with usb_modeswitch?

Thanks for the report, the additional id will be included in the next update of the usb_modeswitch data package.

Have you ever tried the standard cdrom eject message on these two devices?
The only difference between your msg and the std eject msg is only one byte, your "ff" is "02" in std eject.

In my current release (20160112) the file included is as follows:

Code: Select all

# AVM Fritz!Wlan USB Stick N v2                                                 
TargetVendor=0x057c
TargetProductList="8501,8502"
StandardEject=1
NoDriverLoading=1
This doesn't work as apparently the device doesn't listen for a standard eject message.
Adding in the above MessageContent line however seems to fix the issue.

Could you please include the following line in your next release for file 057c:62ff?

Code: Select all

MessageContent="5553424312345678000000000000061b000000ff0000000000000000000000"
Thanks for your time.

Kind regards,
Bart Kuivenhoven.

EDIT:
I almost forgot, you might also want to know what system I'm running.

A fresh Fedora 24 install on a 64-bits Intel machine.
Using version 2.3.0 of usb_modeswitch.

I scanned the source quickly but couldn't find a difference in message contents between the versions in terms of a standard eject though.

The difference is the parameter given together with the 1b command, a parameter which can be 1 or 2 but not ff.
Fritz or his mfgr has abused a standardized command by giving it an invalid parameter instead of using any of the many cmds listed as mfgr specific.
Thanks for the report, we will revert back the config to contain ff as parameter in the next issue of the usb_modeswitch data package.
