- USB mode switcher.
- Used to switch mode on multiple-function devices
+ Some models of some USB devices such as modems and Wifi
+ adapters power-up in mass storage mode to provide access to
+ drivers for the device's application mode. usb_modeswitch
+ changes the mode of such devices from the initial power-up
+ mode to the application mode. Specific configuration data
+ for each device model is required.
+
+ usb_modeswitch can be used with the usb_modeswitch_data
+ package and udev for automatic mode switching when devices
+ are connected.
+
+ For more information search the Internet for "Virtual CD-ROM
+ switching utility".
