Hi!

Sadly enough the libusb do not (did not at the time) support plug an play, this must be handled by some 
other type of application. I did solve it for serial usb devices by using fnotify (github.com/Feuerlabs/fnotify)
code found in (github.com/tonyrog/uart/src/uart_devices.erl)

Please hint to the list (or to me) if you find some nice plug and play api that is multi platform.
(I have use for it in an other project github.com/tonyrog/hid )

Thanks

/Tony

"Installing applications can lead to corruption over time. Applications gradually write over each other's libraries, partial upgrades occur, user and system errors happen, and minute changes may be unnoticeable and difficult to fix"
