Hello, everyone ! It's my first time here. Really great resource. I have one tiny question. I will really appriciate if anyone can help me out with it.
We are developing a "camera on a stick". It is actually a CMOS sensor camera with a very simple Micro controller which supports the USB 2.0 protocol and MPEG2 encoder chip. The idea is that the camera will compress rather small video clips in MPEG2 format to the external "disk-on-key" (for example of M-Systems) connected to the camera all the time during video capturing. When the disk-on-key is inserted to a computer USB it should be automatically accessable by Windows Explorer without installation of any driver software.
The problem we face is how to support the Windows File system without using high-end controllers (ARM for example) with an operating system running on it. We are really interested in keeping the price of the device as low as possible.
As far as I understand today every digital camera, every Voice recorder, MP3 player with USB support faced the same problem. Thank you very much.
