The USB ID Repository The home of the usb.ids file Internet
They claim to be a public repository of all known ID's used in USB devices: ID's of vendors, devices, subsystems and device classes. It is used in various programs (e.g., The USB Utilities) to display full human-readable names instead of cryptic numeric codes. It is using the new PCI IDs web interface.
You can use our web interface to browse the lists and also to submit new entries or to update the existing ones or you can go directly to your profile or notification list. I've tried emailing with not repsonse.
Here is their daily snapshot of a database in form of a usbids file. The link is
I've not noticed this updated at all when viewing the file. The daily snapshot makes you believe that someone is updating the file regularly.
I've also tried teh "Submit New Data" and here is their claim:
The database is maintained by volunteers like you, so if you have any devices which are not identified properly, please help us by adding them to the database or by fixing the existing entry.
New entries are always welcome, but please submit only accurate information – descriptions like "unknown modem device" are hardly useful for anybody. Updates of existing entries to clarify the description or to correct mistakes are also welcome, but in this case please always add a discussion comment explaining the reason for the change.
Updates can be submitted either via the web interface, or as patches to the
usb.ids file sent by e-mail to our mail robot at email@example.com
None of my suggestions have been updated nor have i received a reply.
Don't waste your time!
