Free USB Analyzer Overview
Free USB Analyzer is a non-intrusive software USB sniffer and protocol analyzer for Windows.
This software-based USB protocol analyzer allows you to monitor the data transferred between USB applications and devices connected to your computer via USB interfaces. All Windows desktop/server 32-bit and 64-bit platforms starting from Windows Vista are supported.
Our USB monitoring program may be an excellent alternative to hardware analyzers because it intercepts all Windows API function calls which are transferred between USB applications and device drivers, parses transmitted packets and shows all captured data in a several convenient forms, which is virtually impossible for hardware solutions due to their low level view.
This Freeware USB data snooping utility requires no additional hardware or cables to operate. It runs smoothly, processes monitored packets in real-time even on high data rates (up to 20 Gbit/s). It allows efficient USB protocol analysis for High Speed USB 2.0, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and SuperSpeed+ USB 3.x communications.
For the best user experience, our product supports data filtering. Free version supports filtering by USB endpoints and requests. Paid version also supports filtering by parsed protocol fields and provides you with a lot of custom filtering options.
This USB sniffer helps in developing, debugging, testing and analyzing devices, their drivers, and other software/hardware solutions that exchange data using USB communication protocols.

How Free USB Analyzer Works
The program installs a filter driver between the USB host controller driver and the device driver and then intercepts all USB Request Blocks (URBs), displaying them to the user in an easily readable format.
This free USB monitoring and analysis utility is designed for efficient interception, capturing and decoding of communication data generated by any USB application and device connected to a local or remote PC via the USB interfaces.
Free USB Analyzer supports advanced data filtering by URB type and USB endpoints.
Capturing and interactively displaying data transferred over a USB connection is now made easy!
